Everyone has been affected by cancer in one way or another. Whether you have personally been diagnosed with cancer or have a close friend or loved one that has, we’d love to hear your story. Sharing your story helps in two ways: 1.) It let’s others know that they’re not alone as they take on this disease; and 2.) It helps inspire our participants to raise even more money for life-saving cancer research!
Thank you for sharing your story with us!
When I last saw her she had battled through round after round of chemo, and was told she only had months to live. Her friends gathered together for a BBQ and talked about the old times. We laughed. We cried. It was the most surreal experience of my life.
Not a day passes that I don't think about her or talk to her. She's certainly still with me in someway. If I can help someone out just a little bit that's in the same position Sophia was, I know I'm doing it right.
However, where his disease has proven treatable, there are so many others afflicted with cancer that aren't nearly so lucky. Last September, my mom lost her life to multiple myeloma. It's her name that appears in blue at the top of this page. She wasn't diagnosed until 2006, but just six years later she's no longer with us. It's a tragic reminder that much more work needs to be done.
The day my mom passed away, I vowed never to rest until cancer is nothing; completely brushed into oblivion. After all, this disease effectively robbed me and my family of several decades' worth of memories with this wonderful woman (who was just 62 when she passed)...the least I can do is show cancer the same treatment.
That's why I hope you'll support the efforts of The Dude Hates Cancer. We're raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, who in turn is funding ground-breaking research like this: http://vimeo.com/54668275
Your support could be the difference in the drive to cure cancer. And while you're here, please share your story about your experiences with cancer. It's helpful and, perhaps, therapeutic for those who've witnessed firsthand the damage cancer can do to read other eyewitness accounts. More importantly, though, your stories will serve to inspire the participants of TDHC in their efforts to raise more money and awareness for this cause.
Thanks for visiting...we hope to see you at a TDHC campaign soon!
