If you're reading this...thank you for learning more about why I decided to fund raise for the LIVESTRONG Foundation. If you want to skip this and just want to give me your money, that's cool too, but you should really learn how you are making a difference.
Before I started working at the LIVESTRONG Foundation 3 years ago, I didn't know very much about what LIVESTRONG was all about. Once I starting learning more about the fight against cancer and the role the foundation's work plays in the fight, I was blown away.
Up to that point, finding a cure was the primary focus of all the cancer related information and fundraising events I would come across. There's wasn't much attention being paid to what happens once one is diagnosed and there is no cure for them. Dealing with cancer NOW is just as important as finding a cure for tomorrow.
The money I raise will support programs and services for those impacted by cancer NOW. 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
