Running with my Dad!
The world stops for a moment when you receive "the news," doesn't it? Nothing matters in that moment, except your faith, support of the one diagnosed and their commitment to faith, courage to fight and dedication to win! You stop and think about how every phone call, every spoken word, every hug, laugh, cry, every single moment with your loved one is so precious and must never be taken for granted. You quickly learn every day of life is never a guarantee; but living in every moment and appreciating every day of life is guarantee, if you commit to it!
What is there not to love about my Dad? He is so loving, caring, supportive, smart, goofy, you name it! For those of you who know me well, my Father is my best friend (of course my Mom is too; but this is about my Dad)! Not only do I credit 100% of who I am today (aside from my good looks...that is all my Mom haha); but I am incredibly grateful to have him as my real estate mentor and business partner.
Although it was extremely hard for my Mom, sisters, me and the rest of my family to learn, we all held one common thought - Dad's faith, courage and dedication will destroy this beast and this beast will not stop him for one second. Dad has proven his commitment to faith over fear and his courage to fight and he will win! He will win!!!!!
Moffitt has shown us their commitment to the prevention and cure of cancer and has far exceeded our expectations, as we walk through Dad's journey. Words cannot express our gratitude enough; so my Mom, sisters and I decided we want to give back to Moffitt and are running with our Dad through this journey.
We are asking for your support and to please join us and run with our Dad, in his journey. We want to show him how much support he has! (He knows it already; but we want to SHOW him)!
Please join us and register to participate in this year's Miles for Moffitt race, whether in-person or virtually. If you are out of state, please consider scheduling a nice trip down to visit and participate in Florida (this is a great excuse). If you are unable to participate in-person or virtually, please help us reach our goal to raise $5,000.00 to give back to Moffitt for everything they are doing for my Dad!
Whether you can give $10 or $1,000, every dollar matters to supporting Moffitt's mission - to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer.
Thank you for your love, support and being an important part of our Dad's journey and the Miles for Moffitt community!
