Cancer can be a debilitating illness but it need not be a death sentence. While better medicine is certainly needed to treat the disease, Livestrong helps bridge the gap by providing services that improve the quality of life of those fighting the disease and those who survive. This fundraising effort is dedicated to my grandmother, Dollie Schwindt, who faced mesothelioma my senior year of high school with an amount of dignity and courage that inspires me to this day. Attached please find a family photo from circa 1982 with Grandma Dollie in the center.
The Foundation serves people affected by cancer and empowers them to take action against this disease that is now the world's leading cause of death. LIVESTRONG has become a symbol of hope and inspiration to people affected by cancer around the world.
The money I raise will support programs and services for cancer survivors. These resources help people diagnosed with cancer face the challenges of the disease head on and live life on their own terms. Livestrong.org/WeCanHelp
