Two Survivors, Twice the Fight, Twice the Winning
We're working to end cancer … and we need your help!
On Saturday, November 23, 2019, Our team is participating in the 14th annual Miles for Moffitt run/walk event. All proceeds go completely to support lifesaving cancer research at Moffitt Cancer Center. The work they do can help save lives around the world.
Ron and I are Cancer Survivors. Shortly after Ron was declared No Evidence of Disease (NED), I was diagnosed with Grade 3, Stage 3 Breast Cancer. Our world stopped. How could this happen to us twice and so close together? For me, there was only one choice to fight this disease: Moffitt. We knew they could help us win this battle.
From the moment we walked in the door of the McKinley Center, we were greeted and treated with compassion. My Doctors listened to me, took the time to know me, and treated me as a person, not a number with a disease. My fight became our fight.
The diagnosis of cancer is overwhelming, scary, and mind-numbing, but the care I received made me feel like I mattered. The receptionists, CNAs, Nurses, Researchers, and Doctors put my mind at ease each time I walk into the building. My fight isn't over, but I know I'm not alone.
Ron and I benefitted and continue to benefit from Moffitt's research. That's why we're asking you to support me and my team in our Miles for Moffitt run/walk — either by signing up to participate yourself (I'd love to have you on the team!), or by giving a tax-deductible gift to support our efforts. 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. Thank you so much!
