Welcome to my Game On Cancer fundraising page!
For those of you that don't know, I had cancer this year. I was lucky! They found it when it was just in Stage One. I had one surgery, four weeks off of work and I was able to resume life as I know it.
However, I have to go back every three months for check ups. Every time I go back I walk through a hallway where patients receiving chemo sit. I watch as some people complete their treatment and are picked up by a taxi because they don't have anyone to help. I hear other stories in the waiting room of families trying to figure out how they will survive financially. I realize every time I'm there, Cancer is so much more than just a diagnosis.
Throughout my career, I stumbled up on an amazing organization called Game on Cancer. This year my amazing team at work and I decided to get together to raise money for this awesome organization.
Game On Cancer is a joint partnership between Henry Ford Health System and The Detroit Lions. 100% of funds raised through Game On Cancer are used to assist cancer patients and their families. Our mission is to remove any barrier or burden, financial or otherwise, that limits or prohibits cancer patients from receiving care and treatment.
By assisting vulnerable patients, their families and their care-givers with the “hidden” costs of cancer, we are ensuring access to treatment for all – serving one patient at a time…treating beyond the cure.
You can also help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter! Or, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page!
Thanks so much for your generosity and for joining myself and the Detroit Lions in TACKLING cancer!
