Welcome to My Personal Page
I'm working to end cancer … and I need your help!
On Saturday, November 23, I'm participating in the 14th annual Miles for Moffitt run/walk event. One hundred percent of proceeds from this event go completely to support lifesaving cancer research at Moffitt Cancer Center. Moffitt researchers are at the very front lines of the effort to defeat cancer. They've already made so many amazing breakthroughs, and cancer patients here in Florida and around the world have benefited from their efforts.
But there's so much MORE work to do. So many MORE lives still to be saved!
That's why I'm asking you to support me in my Miles for Moffitt run/walk. Whether you can give $10 or $1,000, every penny will help bring closer the day when cancer is no longer a threat. Please do what you can to help. Thank you so much!
I would love any of my family, friends and supporters to join my team!! You can donate, be a virtrual runner or join us live!!!
The Moffitt caner center has really been such an amazing experience!!! I am battlling an aggressive form of cancer. Was a Stage 3c, now a stage 1b. Hoping I stay there! Moffitt has been soooo amazing and such a positive vibe, like no other!! But, whew... what a crazy turn of life for me this past 8 months!!
I researched tremendously over and over... I was guided to Moffitt in more than one direction again and again. That's where I left it all on the table, cancer!! Living in the Chicago area, we do have the best of the best. I felt a need to go to Moffitt, so I followed my gut. It was amazing. Whatever my outcome may be...as we allreally don't know where our lives will take us, mine took me to the best at Northwestern Medicine of Chicago and Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. I can say, I have not a single regret with any decision thus far. It is a suck ass journey, but I can say I had/have the best cancer care team for me!
I have Triple Negative Breast Cancer, unfornutalely one of the most aggessive forms of breast cancer. I have been through the ringer and still thriving as I continue treatment. It has been quite a detour on my path of life but my road is long and I will get there!!
I would love your support for you to join me personally in Tampa (an amazing town!!,,, as we have visited quite a bit lately) to sign up to walk/run or whatever is your demeanor. I am creating a team, for the people that left me feeling amazing, the warrior, the survivor. Moffitt. Although my team here, as well, is the best for me too! Would love all to join me!! Live in person, a donor or a virtual runner!
I will be returning to Moffitt on several occasions for follow up! My Breast Surgeon, Dr. J Kiluk was amazing and I will follow his recomendation for further surgery at Moffitt. I have months and months of treatment left, but after the first six months I am ready to conquer what this universe is giving me! Bring it on!!!!
My team name....#werthechampions Came to me when watching Bohemian Rapsody. An Amazing movie!!! But, anyone my age or older knows the band Queen. Carly suggested that be my team name. The lyrics of this song is sooo right for ALL of us in life. No matter where it brings us! Because WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD! Wherever our lives take us!
I've paid my dues
Time after time
I've committed no crime
And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I've come through
We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting til the end
We are the Champions
No time for losers
Cause we are the Champions of the world
I've taken my bows
And my curtain calls
You brought me fame and fortune and everything that goes with it
I thank you all
been no bed of roses
No pleasure crusie
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race
And I ain't gonne lose
We are the champions, my friends....
So this, my friends is true. We've all been through so much. Together are our struggles, together we fight. For life, for family, for whatever may be your battle. Mine just happens to be this beast of cancer, but that does not outway whatevever you all may be going through personally.
We are all champions, my friends. Champions of life as we know it!
Please join me, be a prayer, a friend, a participant, a donor, a thought!
Love you all! And love all of my cancer survivors, my family, my friends and all fighting this battle with me!!
Peace out. And peace to you all, that you are blessed with this gift called life:)
