How do you ever thank a group of people for coming together on your behalf? I wish I could yell out, in the biggest way I know how, THANK YOU! But it doesn’t seem big enough.
I was a six-year cancer survivor and recently found out my cancer returned. Cancer itself changes you in so many ways! We all know the struggles that can come with cancer, but we cannot underestimate the good that surrounds us! I recently was embraced by this good by a local business, GoWesty (my hubby’s employer).
GoWesty staff, friends, family, community, and strangers came together to help fundraise on our behalf. It was very humbling. At the event, I almost forgot I had cancer. We are so fortunate to be surrounded by such a great community, and I saw that firsthand at the fundraising event. On top of that, the generosity of GoWesty is astonishing! The owners matched all of the proceeds that day, which came to a grand total of $12,381! I can’t tell you what peace that gives our family. But it is amazing to see the power of compassion and human spirit. I carry that with me every day as I fight this cancer.
We thank each and every one of you!
