THE STORY:

Why should you donate? I’m glad you asked. 

15 years ago I joined a group that I never thought I would, certainly not as a Junior in college - a cancer survivor. Hearing the words "you have cancer" changed my life. I wasn't sure I would make it through the chemo and subsequent Bone Marrow Transplant, let alone still be here 5,475+ days later (Thanks James!) Yet here I am today doing every single thing I can to "get busy living" and help those who are dealing with this disease. 

About three years ago I stumbled across nonprofit organization and community of people known as Stupid Cancer. They had a call for people to be a part of a Steering Committee for the OMG 2012 Conference and I applied. Turned out that getting involved with OMG was one of the best decisions I’ve made. 

It took me 12 years to realize that trying not to be the “Cancer Girl” kept me apart from a community filled with resources, support and people who “get it.” 

A community I didn’t even know I was missing until I found them. At OMG I wasn’t the “Cancer Girl” being singled out for my experiences, we are all members of the #stupidcancerposse.

I had a number of light bulb moments my first year (and my second) including – I’m not alone in navigating the world post cancer and long term affects that decided to show up so many years later.

Three years later, OMG is something I look forward to every year. It has helped me re-frame and own my Cancer experience and transform into becoming a better advocate and a volunteer. Stupid Cancer continues to impact and inspire me daily through the people I’ve met, the ones I’ve lost and the ones I’ve yet to meet.

If you can, please consider donating. Any size donation would be most appreciated.  

Stupid cancer. Survivors rule.

xoxo
