To me LIVESTRONG means WHEN ONE IS FIGHTING CANCER WE ALL FIGHT.

I lost my mom Pat to Colon Cancer in September of 1999. Losing the person that has always been there for you throughout life, the greatest cheerleader that supported everything I did and loved me unconditionally was heartbreaking.  Not a day goes by that I don't think about and miss her.  After watching her wage such a fierce battle against cancer I knew I had to do something to give back.  I chose the Livestrong Foundation.  I was not going to let cancer take anymore of the people I loved without a huge fight on my part.  The greatest lesson my mom taught me was the power of giving back.   Because what you give to others makes you stronger as well. When one fights we all fight, in the battle against Cancer no one goes "Solo"  That's why I've decided to form "Team Red Solo Cup" to let the world know as Cancer Fighters we plan to band together and take Cancer on no matter where it rears it's ugly head.  And we will do it with courage, purpose and determination. And we will do it TOGETHER. The Red Solo Cup will remind us that we cannot make it Solo…only as a team will the fight be won…..and along the way lets have fun doing it! LIVESTRONG
