I was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2012. Those are words one never hopes to hear, but I've made it thru. Since my diagnosis, I have undergone surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments. My last treatment was on Thursday, May 9. I'm sure I don't need to tell you what a wonderful feeling that is!
Thruout these past many months, I have had the wonderful support of my family, many friends and co-workers. They have made this struggle all the easier. I have also had the outstanding care and support of my team at the Breast Cancer Center at Strong's James P. Wilmot Cancer Center. This is my opportunity to give back, if even in a small way. Please consider donating to this fundraising event and help support the great work they provide to others like me.
Thank you, Helen
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
