CANCER HAS TOUCHED EVERYONE - INCLUDING ME AND MY FAMILY - BUT THERE IS AMAZING SUPPORT! IT'S - weSPARK!
I was lucky to find weSpark many years ago when my father was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I also had friends who were involved due to their own diagnoses' so I "walked" to raise money AND to honor my father. He lived a long life until 87 after having a mastectomy and chemotherapy - both successful. I ALSO supported weSpark because of the amazing support services they were offering my friends.
Just a little over a year ago - the day after Thanksgiving - I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and found myself walking into weSpark to take care of myself.
I knew I couldn't do this alone.
From the moment I walked in I was inundated with love, care and support - from counseling services - to support groups - classes in nutrition, yoga, guided imagery and pain management - to making life long friendships that I will treasure forever - it has all changed my life for the better.
How wonderful is it that weSpark exists - AND it's all free!
Please join me by walking on Sunday January 21st - (there is a registration fee of $45), or making a donation (ANY amount helps!) to this extraordinary organization. www.wespark.org
I am blessed to be alive and forever grateful.
