As you know, cancer really got personal for me when my dad was diagnosed with a high grade soft tissue sarcoma in June 2015. Getting that news was a punch in the gut and terrifying to say the least. With the treatments that have been available to him and the wonderful doctors he's had, his scans have been clear now for 2 1/2 years and for that I am so very thankful! It makes you aware of how precious time is, to surround yourself with people you love and to live each day to your fullest. However, some aren't as lucky and the fight continues to find more treatments and more importantly a cure for this horrible disease! I have friends and family members that cancer has taken loved ones from so please join me in supporting cancer patients in the Upstate by donating to the annual Dragon Boat Upstate Festival.
By making a donation in support of my Dragon Boat team, Release the Kraken, you help provide vital cancer research and survivorship programs to cancer patients in our community. So many of us have been touched by cancer in some way and this event provides a way for us to honor and remember loved ones that have faced or continue to face the disease. Make a gift to my Dragon Boat team and know that you are making a difference to cancer patients right here in the Upstate.
