I've always had HOPE. I used to hope for a good hair day, the sun to shine on a day I planned an outdoor party or vacation...maybe (along time ago :) ) that a boy that I liked, liked me back. After being diagnosed with cancer, the things I hope for have changed dramatically. In the last couple of years, I have hoped for easy treatments, hoped they found it in time....hoped the surgery would go well, hoped for clear scans....but most of all I hoped I would be here for my daughters and to see my granchildren born.
TODAY and always, my biggest hope is that my daughters never hear those 3 life changing words..."you have cancer", that's why I'm doing my part to support the American Cancer Society by being a team captain for Relay for Life. If you aren't familiar with this event, please visit the website. It is an amazing event that raises $$ for the treatment,research, programs and services, for ALL cancers! This life saving site that we have all turned to for support, suggestions, laughs and tears, and most of all bonds with others experiencing the exact same thing we are is just one of many wonderful things the American Cancer Society provides to people living with cancer.
I don't usually ask for donations, but being a volunteer for the American Cancer Society and experiencing cancer first hand, I see how vital this support is. So, I'm asking if you are not already contributing to just give up one 20oz coffee for US! Even $5.00 provides an hour of toll-free access to the National Cancer Information Center, providing support and valuable info to a newly diagnosed cancer patient.
