That's me wearing my SURVIVOR shirt from the Light the Night Walk....organized by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We all gathered Sunday night at the Seagate Center to help in the fight against blood cancers and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. I love their mission statement: Someday is Today!
Thank you to the kind folks at the Hickman Cancer Center at Flower Hospital who allowed me to share this testimonial and my story of a great experience during my chemo therapy treatments. Saturday at the Flower campus was the Bite for the Fight...a one mile walk with area restaurants making wonderful munchies available as we strolled the grounds. And God bless everyone who came out in the pouring rain and braved the weather to help promote all the essential support programs that are available to cancer patients who use the Hickman Center.
Join me at two events this coming weekend...to raise awareness about cancer!
On Saturday...The Hickman Cancer Center on the campus of Flower Hospital will be the site of
A Bite for the Fight. It's a one mile walk with delicious restaurants offering samplings along the way. All proceeds will help support the Hickman Center and its programs. And as a recipient of those wonderful programs, I will be giving a testimonial about my experiences at the Hickman Center and how I could not have survived without them! Registration for the walk begins at 9am.
On Sunday...The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society will be holding its Light the Night walk at the Seagate Center...with festivities starting at 5pm and the walk taking place at 7pm. Since my cancer diagnosis is nonHodgkins Lymphoma, my family and I plan to be here to fight the fight against blood cancers!
