Anyone who knows me, understands that I’m not one for standing idle and watching things happen around me. That faith and compassion compels me to help those in need and care for everything and everyone, especially those less fortunate. I believe that if we all make an effort, we can affect change and make a difference. Yet, as I write this I’m reminded time after time of a feeling of fear and helplessness each and every time someone I loved and cared for told me they had cancer. Can’t even imagine how they must have felt being told they have it.

To make it real, I started writing a list of all the people I knew that had it; Grandfather, Dad, uncle, cousin, friends, colleagues. The list was longer than I expected, even more shocking was the number of people who died from it. Every time I heard someone near to me had it, I prayed and cried and wished for a cure. I realize now I don’t need a wish bone but a back bone. So I am fighting back. I can’t bring back my dad, uncle and grandfather but I can do my part to try to stop the list from getting longer.

I have seen first-hand how lives are lengthened because of advancements in cancer treatments and I want to give my energy and power to that storyline. So, I am asking for your help and donate to this worthy cause to help achieve my goal of $10,000.00 by fight night. #FTEC2019

I am participating in the 8th annual Fight To End Cancer in support of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. I am raising research dollars with a vision of reaching a goal we all share – To Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime!
