Why are you participating?
My entire adult life I have had at least one friend battling cancer all the time, typically breast cancer. A lifelong friend of mine has battled cancer since 2010. I was in Harrisonburg for her double mastectomy and rebuild. Since that time she has experienced bouts with cancer two more times. The last two times she was told she had about six months to live. Through the strength of God and her husband she is still with us today and scan free. Coupled with aggressive approaches and getting outside the box for treatment, she is still very much alive. But the struggle is real and none of us know when it might be us that is told we have cancer of some form. Or maybe we get the call we have lost that loved one who has fought the battle so bravely.
Therefore, I live my life by the motto that there is always someone, somewhere, less fortunate than myself. I would like to be proactive, participate and help others. By raising funds for this cause we can all help. One day through determination and dollars donated to the cause by all of us, this world of ours may be free of what many simply call the big "C" word. Please make a contribution to the cause through this page or make checks payable to Susan G. Komen VA Blue Ridge & mail to my office at 3715 Old Forest Road, Lynchburg, Va. 24502. Together we are "better, stronger, wiser".
