BENEFITING: ABOVE & BEYOND CANCER

EVENT: YMCA - Above + Beyond Cancer Survivorship Program

EVENT DATE: Sep 09, 2015

Darelynn Egger

THE STORY:

I will be traveling to Nepal on a humanitarian mission with 23 other cancer survivors and care givers. Each participant has been asked to raise $5,000.00 to support the Des Moines, IA Wellmark YMCA Cancer Survivorship Program. This program furthers the mission of Above & Beyond to "elevate the lives of those touched by cancer to create a healthier world".  To paraphrase Dr. Deming, survivors learn to move from "post tramatic stress to post tramatic growth."  The physical and emotional traumas suffered by cancer survivors are extreme. The Wellmark YMCA offers support for survivors by teaching a variety of classes to help people cope with their diagnosis and after effects of their treatment . The tools gained from theses classes give survivors renewed purpose and hope. Improving ones mind, body and spirit is vital to surviving cancer. 

Your generous donation will allow survivors to be able to receive scholarships to attend classes.  In addition, with your support, money will help pay for instructors and equipment for a variety of classes offered by Wellmark YMCA.  Some of the classes offered are exercise, yoga, mindful meditation, and nutrion.  As I near my 20th year of being a cancer survivor myself, I am honored to be able to give back and support this cause, as well as support the Nepalese people. All donations are greatly appreciated. Please be generous. Thank you for your interest, compassion and support.

Mom you are my hero!! While you had cancer and were in recovery, you handled that adversity with such grace, I'm so happy to give my support to this cause that empowers and teaches people to do the same. To say my life wouldn't have been the same without you is the understatement of the century! Thanks for fighting the good fight and coming out on top. Kick ass in Nepal like you kicked cancers ass! 2 years ago
