I have been slightly remiss in getting this posted..so my apologies for that!
We all know someone who has had to battle the horrible disease of cancer. We know it is a devastating illness that often takes our loved ones from us. We also know it can leave our loved ones with us, although with a very different light from them. Personally, I have lost many I love dearly to cancer, but I have also gotten to count blessings with those who were able to fight and remain with us. I won't name names, we all know who they are and we all feel the sad and glad.
The one name I will mention today is BGfNY's own Sandy. On April 14 she will be celebrating the day she had her cancer surgery. I like to call it her April Birthday. This year will be her 4th. I always wanted her to have an April one so we could have them together in the same month instead of nine days apart in separate months! (I love her!)
This year, on April 19 at the SUNY at Brockport, our Bad Girl will be leading her Warriors team in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. The Relay for Life raises funds for cancers of all kinds and for many purposes. I know the cancer center where I volunteer uses it for education materials to hand out to those with questions about diet, medications, treatments, what may be ahead and even how to aid caregivers. I have seen myself what this information can do to help people and I have been fortunate enough that I have been able to share these materials on occasion with my own loved ones dealing with this horrible illness.
SO, in honor of all those we know, survivors or lost, I am asking that you try to send what you can to help Sandy's team raise a bunch of money for the American Cancer Society to help those battling.
Sandy Persons team is called the Warriors and you can have your name listed or not...up to you. You can donate big or small...every $5 counts and it adds up very quickly.
Go to Relay For Life of SUNY Brockport to donate. You may also decide to have a luminary in memorial of a loved one!
Thank you everyone! And an added huge HUGG for those that send in their hard earned pennies!
***please note that on the site Sandy's name is spelled Cassandra! Thank you!!******
