Linked to a Cure
Many of you know my journey and I am hoping to raise funds and assist Moffitt to help more people win the battle with cancer. Did you know that it was also Moffitt that helped Matt this past year with his swallowing issues after heart surgery paralyzed one of his vocal cords? Because of cancer research, Dr. Otto knew exactly how to restore functionality to damaged vocal chords.
Just last October, with Matt by my side, we both heard the words that I had passed the period for possible recurrence of my oral cancer. Yes, the true official words "You are cured". Matt's swallowing was also given the green light.
I still need to go in for annual checkups for the thyroid cancer. Yes, I had not one, but two forms of cancer.
Matt and I decided that "Linked to a Cure" would pariticpate in this wonderful Moffitt fundraiser, so that more people can hear those wonderful words. We are dedicated to aid in the research to eradicate this disease.
On Saturday November 23 2019 we are participating in the Miles for Moffitt fund raising event. Every dollar of our registration fee, and every dollar of our fundraising efforts go 100% to support lifesaving cancer research at Moffitt Cancer Center.
Moffitt researchers are at the front lines of the effort to defeat cancer. They've already made so many amazing breakthroughs, and cancer patients in Florida and around the world have benefited from their efforts.
That's why I'm asking you to support us in our Miles for Moffitt endeavor. Whether you can give $10 or $1,000, every penny will help bring closer the day when cancer is beaten. Please do what you can to help; if not for me or Matt, to support those that that are fighting, or to honor a memory of someone that may have lost their battle.
Thank you so much.
