Tomorrow I will be participating in the 2014 Boston Get Your Rear In Gear 5K Run/Walk, an event to benefit the Colon Cancer Coalition. On behalf of my friend Debbie Rech-Whitmore, who is cancer warrior and inspiration. I want to carry the torch for her when she can’t be there.
A very brief background for Debbie: In Nov 2011, Debbie was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic colon cancer. Her prognosis was not very good. But Debbie is a fighter and has surpassed all expectations that the doctors had given her. However, in September 2014, her body is just not able to continue to fight off the cancer, which has spread to many places including her spine and hip, causing excruciating pain and more recently to her cerebellum, which affects her balance. Debbie is our Wonder Woman! But she Is also a realist. She has set up the appointment for the “bridge to hospice”.
I am going to shamelessly ask all of my friends to donate any amount you can in an effort to help with prevention, early detection and treatment for this disease. Cancer has affected so many in our lives. it’s time we made BIG strides in the area. A donation in any amount helps: ($5, $10, $20) – click on the button that says “Support Tami” (it’s in green on the right of the page) I do have a set amount but my hope is that I can blow it out of the water with all your support. Thank you all in advance.
DONATE AND BE ENTERED TO WIN HANDMADE CARDS FROM ME
If you donate any amount I will enter you into a drawing to win a package of handstamped cards from me. I’ll be giving away 5 packs, draw winners on Sunday following the walk. I will announce on FB here.
