BENEFITING: PINK FUND INC
ORGANIZER: PINK FUND INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 05, 2017
Having stood alongside my father from the day of his diagnosis, and throughout the ups and downs of his two year battle, I saw and felt the impact of this dreaded disease. While his initial prognosis was six months, I felt fortunate for those additional 18 months. Since then, I've experienced the impact of cancer with several other family and friends. WIth each death, the concept of survival has evolved. As a caregiver, I suffered with my father, my family and my friends, and even when the outcome wasn't what I had hoped for, I was left with greater understanding, wonderful memories, and above all. hope.
Whether a cancer diagnosis is yours or a loved one's, we are all survivors. It will be an honor to be able to demonstrate my support for and to celebrate those who have survived cancer as a participant in Dancing With The Survivors
I am dancing for a wonderful friend and co-worker, Judy Vindici, who is a breast cancer survivor. Judy has been involved with The Pink Fund for many years and is an inspiration. My dance will be dedicated to Judy and all of the breast cancer survivors here supporting The Pink Fund. As well as a tribute to my dad… whom I miss very much!
