Courage brings us together. Nothing can tear us apart.
On April 10th 2019, I was diagnosed with Oral Cancer (a big surprise to someone who has never smoked or used smokeless tobacco). After a CT scan, it was determined the best course of treatment would be to remove the cancerous section of my tongue and the lymph nodes in my neck. The additional test ran on the removed section of my tongue and lymph nodes did not come back as well we had hoped. I needed to have additional treatments of both radiation and chemo therapy or as Christina has said I had been upgraded to the Cancer Gold Package. (Surgery, Radiation, and Chemo)
My Moffitt medical team took great care of me and continue to support me through my recovery. I have seen first hand the impact Moffitt has on not only those fighting cancer but also those caring for them.
On Saturday, October 24, our team is participating in the 15th annual Miles for Moffitt...and we need your help! Miles for Moffitt is a community-wide movement of inspiration, courage, and hope that allows our community to come together to raise critical funds for cancer research at Moffitt Cancer Center.
Please join us in raising funds for Moffitt patients, families, survivors, and caregivers by joining our team or making a gift to our team or a participant on our team. Whether you can give $10 or $1,000, every dollar is critical to supporting Moffitt's mission - to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer.
Thank you for your support and being an important part of the Miles for Moffitt community.
