I don't doubt that eventually, anyone touched by cancer can become a survivor. Life after cancer for those who have fought the battle and won is not always easy. Events like this give incredible medical centers like the Wilmot Cancer Center the tools they need to make life better for survivors. Let's walk together to help cancer survivors get the treatment they deserve, and the care that they need. I am walking in memory of my dad, Tom Sciolino, and his notorious but unfortunately not victorious battle with brain cancer, and in honor of my grandma, Gail Chambers, who valiantly fought breast cancer and won. Please help my team and I raise as much money as possible for cancer survivorship and the Warrior Walk. Every dollar counts.
The Warrior Walk will be a fun-filled event for cancer survivors to connect with one another and share in celebration with their friends, family and caregivers. Today, there are more than 12 million cancer survivors in the United States, a number that increases every day. These survivors deserve to have the fullest, healthiest possible life after their cancer care yet face many ongoing health challenges. The effects of cancer treatment can be far-reaching, and dependent upon many factors, including the type and progression of the disease, length of treatment, and the ever-evolving drugs and therapies used.
Please join us on June 2, National Cancer Survivor's Day, as hundreds will come together to support Judy's Fund at the James P. Wilmot Cancer Center at the University of Rochester Medical Center. http://warriorwalk.urmc.edu
