There are so many different faces of cancer, so many different kinds of cancers, it does not discriminate. It does not care about your age, your race, your political belief or your economic status.
Who am I Standing Up 2 Cancer For?
For my sister in law Cindy, who passed away two years ago this month. Mere minutes after her 32nd birthday. She dismissed symptoms. She got diagnosed with colon cancer, months later it was in her brain. Sunday morning she was teaching Sunday School. Sunday Night she was in the hospital and tests showed that it had taken over her brain. The next day, she was in a coma.
I was blessed enough to be in the room with her when she passed away.
She left behind a husband, and two daughters, and us, a family who never got enough time with her. *that is a story for another blog.
For my grandfather-in-law, who passed away from Colon Cancer mere months after his Granddaughter.
For my Grandfather, Dee, who passed away this past Easter from Colon Cancer.
For my mother, who was born with brain tumors and has been blissfully cancer free for 57 years.
For my soon to be new Mother-in-law, Debbie, who has fought cancer twice, and is winning.
For Rodney, a close family friend, who fought Brain Cancer and lost.
I stand up for all of them, for myself, for my children.
Educate, Donate, learn and be pro-active. Your donation could make the difference.
Stand Up 2 Cancer. It is a fight that we can and will win.
