PLEASE JOIN MY TEAM!
In November of 2013, after a year of misdiagnosis, I was rushed in for an emergency transverse colectomy and diagnosed with late stage Colon Cancer with Lynch Syndrome. On May 1st of 2018, a colonoscopy revealed the cancer had returned. I underwent a sub-total colectomy with an internal ileal pouch on June 21 2018. During my diagnosis we lost more family members to colon cancer/cancer.
Cancer does not rest. It doesn’t do a warm down at the end of a 5k road race. Cancer doesn’t sleep at the end of the day. It doesn’t flee the cold for warm weather during cold New England winters. Cancer is relentless, showing no favorites and taking no prisoners. Wealthy or poor, educated or illiterate, young or old, it doesn’t discriminate. Cancer has no friends, no allies, no comrades. It doesn’t need any. It does its damage on its own. It is its own army. It is insidious, creeping into the lives of everyone, leaving a path of destruction and tragedy in its wake.
Join the party when 3,000 walkers and runners rock the Seacoast Cancer 5K on Sunday, September 22 in Dover, NH. One of the region’s largest fundraising events, it’s a celebration of life and the lifesaving work of Wentworth-Douglass Hospital’s Seacoast Cancer Center.
The Seacoast Cancer 5K is a positive experience from beginning to end, with hundreds of neighbors, friends and family lining the route to cheer. And at the start/finish line, you’ll find music, food and activities for the kids. Best of all, every dollar raised supports cancer care right here in our community.
Proceeds from the Seacoast Cancer 5K support the Survivorship, Health and Wellness Program at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital which extends the clinical expertise needed to develop and monitor care plans for the growing number of survivors. These services help patients regain and improve their health for the long term and are individualized, based on their specific needs. Care plans may include things like smoking cessation programs, exercise and physical rehabilitation, genetic testing, as well as seminars and workshops for both survivors and their families.
