We fight to improve the lives of people affected by cancer
Hi all! I'm Sue Edwards and was
recently diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins 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 starting
When I found out about my diagnosis I reached out to the LIVESTRONG foundation.
A few weeks later I received a nice package of materials in the mail from the
Foundation. I waited to open it because I thought if I open it, then the cancer
diagnosis is true and 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, nothing at all. AMAZING. 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 it!
Yours in health, running and joy,
