Welcome to Liz Vogel's Fundraising Page!
Please support me this year in raising money for Miles for Moffitt [Cancer Center]. While this was, and is, my year with cancer, when you contribute, your contribution is for ….
It’s for the person you love who just got the call that their cancer test was positive.
It’s for the moment that their world changed forever - and so did yours.
It’s for the doctor who had to tell yet another patient today that they have cancer.
It’s for the child that asks, ‘where is daddy going?’ as he heads toward the treatment rooms from the waiting room.
It’s for the doctor and care team that comfort each family member when they come to visit, and the patient when the family is not there.
It is for the friend who just heard that the cancer is back.
It’s for the young mother on her cell phone in the waiting room crying to a friend, trying to be discreet, but gasping out the news that it’s spread. First it was in the breast, then it had gone to the lungs, and now it is in the pancreas. How in the world will she tell her children - again?
It’s for the strength of friendships long and dear and those just beginning.
It’s for the courage of the work colleagues that makes work possible on days that are tough, and they carry you through.
It’s for learning about how to love this new version of the physical you.
It’s for the patience of the caregiver to the cancer patient who despite having worked a long day, finds the strength to go that extra stretch, arrive at their bedside on time, with a smile and compassion for the one they love.
It is for the hours and hours spent by dedicated researchers, doctors, nurses, care teams, pharmacists, and all healthcare professionals that make up the small army of passionate, and committed workers trying desperately to finding a cure and the prevention for cancer.
