Why Dragon Boat - check out the "Dollars at Work" link on the Missions page. I support each of these programs, but the truth is I do this for a much deeper reason. Cancer is a very personal topic for me. Starting with losing my MaMa-Ree in 1999, and seemingly- year after year seeing cancer affect so many people that I know. It leaves me with a feeling of helplessness, and that feeling hit hard again in October of 2016. A dear friend was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon, a friend that has been beside me at every Dragon Boat race from the beginning. He is now a patient at GHS, getting great care and fighting hard! His diagnoses was a very different experience for me, he’s our age, active, healthy … someone who we travel with, I worked with … a person in my daily life. And he is also married to one of my dearest friends. Therefore, I see the impact on the whole family first hand. We have a saying in our little tightknit group …”It’s not about one of us, it’s about all of us”. Cancer is far reaching, and we will not let it win. Our fight is renewed … and we will make a difference - right here in Greenville!
Please know all donations are GREATLY appreciated … from $10 to $100 – every dollar counts and I thank you in advance for your consideration!! Paddles Up!!
