We fight to improve the lives of people affected by cancer
Hi all! I'm Sue Edwards and was recently
diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I actually signed up to run for the
LIVESTRONG Foundation BEFORE I even knew I had cancer. How fortuitous, really.
No matter where this road takes me, I'm paying it forward and will start now!
When I found out about my diagnosis I reached
out to the LIVESTRONG foundation. A few weeks later I received a very nice
package of materials in the mail from the Foundation. I waited a few weeks to
open it because I thought if I open it, then the cancer diagnosis is true and
truth be told - at that point I was hoping for false positives. Well, I finally
opened it and will forever be grateful. They have so much to offer and are
supportive in so many ways. It's comforting knowing that I can pick up the phone
or email for support any time I need it. The best part about the support they
offer? It does not cost me anything, that's right - nothing at all. AMAZING!
Imagine how many others this organization has helped? I had no idea the depth
and breadth of this organization until just a few weeks ago.
In 2015 I will be running the Austin Marathon
as part of Team Choose Joy, with a team goal of raising $100,000 to help cancer
fighters just like me. As part of Team LIVESTRONG, I'm making a difference in
the fight against cancer. Please join me in this good fight - I'm in it to win
Yours in health, running and joy,
