GO THE EXTRA MILE
Wednesday, June 15, 2016
It’s Summertime! A time when many of us gear up for the CHALLENGE of 5K and 10K runs; half marathons, the “easier said than done” 26.2 mile marathons; and bicycle journeys that take us across the city, countryside or entire states! At Cancer Action we are ASKING YOU to consider accepting another CHALLENGE this spring! Will you join us as we “GO THE EXTRA MILE” to help cancer patients in our community? Cancer patients face challenges and journeys that are filled with uncertainty, fear and hope. Often they do not know where their journey may lead.
With your support WE PLEDGE that we, too, will “GO THE EXTRA MILE” for cancer patients, just like Danielle!
At age 30, Danielle was diagnosed with breast cancer and began one of the most challenging journeys of her life! As a mother, wife, daughter, teacher, and praise team member at church, her first thoughts were, ‘This can’t be happening to me! Am I going to live? Can I make it through this? What do I do now?’ That’s when she turned to Cancer Action. Cancer Action was a strong support to her and her family. We provided nutritional supplement; helped with her medications; provided medical supplies needed from her surgery; and education and emotional support all throughout her journey. Today she is a cancer survivor!
