Shining With Hope
What a lucky lady I am to have been able to beat the beastly disease of what is Cancer.... so proud to say in June I will be 7 years out from my battle!! Throughout it all, I have had the support of so many family and friends and I thank each and every one of you for that. I am very blessed. However, as the world turns and life goes on, cancer still exists. Our neighbor, bank teller, coworker, patients, mother, uncle, sister, or even our own selves may be battling the monster of cancer. Let's show support and give this community the courage to take on the battle with both fists up... because even in the smallest of ways, we have the capability to make their fight a little less. I am fortunate, in being a nurse, to meet heroes every day. I am still always inspired by my patients and their stories.... as well as eager to share my own with them if necessary to ignite some hope as they begin the battle. It's never easy to know how to help or what to say... but just doing this walk or donating to the cause speaks volumes to the support we are able to offer. Whether your fighting, have fought, or are walking in memory of a brave soul, this is a great event to come and share some hope and spread some love!
The money raised stays within the community. It goes towards paying for medications, nutritional supplements, wigs and prostheses, support groups, skilled nursing visits, transportation, mini-grants, and supportive services to patients of all cancer types. Funds raised enable Lowell General Hospital to provide assistance, support, and services to help people feel better, build confidence and instill hope throughout their battle with cancer.
