Hello. My Name is Sandy Dalton. I am a podiatrist in Somers Point,NJ who began Dragonboating with my friend Sandy Fry. When Sandy was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer we joined Gilda's Club. Gilda's club was a safe place where encouragement, education and programs were provided for free.That was a Godsend since medical care was requiring a lot of her savings.
During the first Festival I dedicated my paddle in honor of Sandy.
Last year I dedicated my paddle to my brother Phillip Dalton Jr., who battled and lost the fight to Leukemia.
This year I am dedicating my efforts to myself as I have recently undergone a colon resection to rid myself of Colon Cancer. I am one of the lucky ones who will not require Chemotherapy or Radiation. I have attended free programs at Gilda's Club this year that have been very helpful to me.
I am fundraising forthe non-profit organization Gilda's Club South Jersey because of the many great free services they provide for all people in South Jersey who have been touched by Cancer. These are vital and necessary services that need our support and donations to keep the doors open.
Thank you for your support!!!
God Bless you.
