THE STORY:

Please help me OverCome Cancer for my beautiful "Oma", Sally Crump Driessen.  This classy, elegant woman was more than my grandmother, she was my best friend and I miss her every day. She truly inspired me to always strive for my best, whether it was studying for a test or just practicing the piano. I have always lived my life hoping that she would be proud of the person I have grown to be.

To all of her friends and family utter loss, she is not here with us today. She lost her long battle with Ovarian Cancer ten years ago at the at the young age of 70. Her last words to me were "I love you, sweetheart". I remember it like it was yesteday.

The reason I will "Oma" Come Cancer is so that the many omas out there fighting this awful disease will have the chance to see their grandchildren graduate from high school, maybe even hold their great grandchild, and can hear "I love you, sweetheart". Something I wish for every day. <3

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 2nd, 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
