To Fight Cancer, You Need a Team - One That is Tougher Together
But even the tough need champions, and that’s where Game On Cancer and our Quarantine Companions come into play.
Pickles, our dog is always quick to inform us of how she's there and wants you to know she is. Her ears back and big eyes push your hand at your side to inform you - you are loved, you are valued. She's very keen to people's anxieties and quick to try and turn things happy and simple. Be it guarding her toy in a faux-defense to egg you on to play or immediately getting next to you on the couch and resting her head on you to show solidarity in your pain. She's made life not only bearable but somehow more vivid during a time of uncertainty.
Bailey is never too far away to voice her opinion over matters. You may have never met a vocal cat but this one takes away the meaning of "affection from a distance". She's formed a routine with us working from home. She has her own seat next to mine and every now and then, will meow, as if a reminder that I'm doing a good job. Surprisingly, this happens in moments I may feel self-doubt about my work or job stability. We've begun to call her our "meowing director" as she's always there to watch you work and sometimes inform you, you need a moment. Her tiny, frail paws from age reach out to your hand and direct them towards her for an intermittent moment of scratches or to meow loudly at us to grab our attention as if to remind us, "you're fixating too hard on the problem". She's what has made the transition of working from home a more soothing comfort.
Both of my animals work together to make life better for us. Easing anxieties, providing a moment of feeling at center. Having us know that they love us just as much as we love them. They prove the saying is true, we didn't rescue them - they rescued us.

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.
