To Fight Cancer, You Need a Team - One That is Tougher Together
I run the Detroit Marathon each year (possibly virtual this year) in support of Game on Cancer and to honor my family and friends who have had their individual fight. This year, however, I am running in honor of my mom. You may or may not know that, she was diagnosed with bile duct cancer early November, 2019. Her journey started with, what we thought would be a simple emergency room visit for stomach pain. Little did we know we would be spending a lot of time within Henry Ford Health System for appointments, testing, surgery and Chemo Therapy. This has been tough on my mom, but we would not have been able to do this without the support of the exceptional Henry Ford Cancer Institute team that is caring for her. At the prime age of 80, she continues to keep a positive outlook and stay active while fighting her battle, but even the tough need champions, and that’s where Game On Cancer comes into play.
Cancer is a thief. It’s a disease that can steal not just health, but financial well-being, too. Imagine if cancer depleted your funds so you could no longer afford transportation to your chemotherapy appointments or buy healthy food.
I am raising money for Game On Cancer to ensure patients can get to their appointments, keep the lights on in their home and have access to life-saving medications. 100% of every dollar raised supports this mission and 100% is used locally.
Please join me and our Game On Cancer champions with a donation today? Your support will allow us to continue expanding services, research and financial assistance to thousands of people in our community every year. We are tougher together.
