I am so honored to be hosting the Cycle for Cancer ride this October benefiting the American Cancer Society, which is near and dear to my family and so many others. In October 2014 my Grandma Rosie was in her second year battling cancer and had knit herself an Orange wig to wear with her SF Giants baseball hat for the World Series. She took a selfie and posted it on her Facebook. I thought it was amazing and decided to post it on Twitter with the caption “My grandma who is battling cancer knitted herself a wig for the World Series – she is the absolute best!”. What went from a tweet to show others how strong and positive my grandma’s spirit suddenly turned into a viral tweet where news stations were reaching out to interview my grandma about her story! My grandma and I went to a world series game together and it was one of the best moments of my life. I saw the way the whole cancer community supported my grandma and filled her with hope, joy, and love. It means the world to me to be able to give back and raise money in my grandma’s honor and fight for those who are battling today.
The global pandemic of the Coronavirus Disease, COVID-19, continues to have a serious impact on many people, including cancer patients, their families, and caregivers. Cancer patients are among those at high risk of serious illness from an infection because their immune systems are often weakened by cancer and its treatments. Most people who were treated for cancer in the past (especially if it was years ago) are likely to have normal immune function, but each person is different.
Many know the ACS, a nationwide, community-based organization, for their research and quest to eradicate cancer from our lives. But ACS does so much more--they attack cancer from every angle. They promote healthy lifestyles to help people prevent cancer. They research cancer and its causes to find more answers and better treatments. They fight for life-saving policy changes. They provide everything from emotional support to the latest cancer information for those who have been touched by cancer.
In addition, the American Cancer Society addresses the unequal burden of cancer among minority populations and those who lack health insurance through their Health Systems Initiatives. Through community partnerships, ACS reaches individuals in underserved communities, promotes health equity and ensures equal access to cancer education and screenings for all individuals.
This virtual Zoom class will be recorded so donors who cannot attend at this specific time can access the event & workout afterwards.
