I think we can all agree that CANCER SUCKS! Not sure anyone out there can argue differently.
Cancer has affected far too many people in my life - both family and friends.
I have friends that have lost parents to cancer at MUCH too young of an age...unable to watch my friends grow up and/or experience being a part of their grandkid's lives.
I have coworkers who've experienced painful losses of spouses and parents to cancer.
I have friends that have suffered from cancer of many types...from skin to cervical.
My dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer a couple of years ago and now thankfully cancer-free. Now he is experiencing the pain of his good friend battling a very aggressive type of cancer. Several of my mom's and family friends are also battling cancer.
Long story short, cancer is everywhere. Half of all men and one third of women in the U.S. will get cancer in their lifetime. The money raised for Fred Hutch will continue to fund their impactful research to treat so many types of cancer and hopefully keep our loved ones around if diagnosed. Someday (and it's possible!!), they will be able to obliterate cancer for good!
Help me raise some moola for a VERY good cause and help Fred Hutch continue doing some amazing things in the fight against cancer!
