November is Stomach Cancer Awareness Month
Landon continues to endure chemotherapy every 2 weeks in his fight with stomach cancer.
Join me in showing your support for Landon by raising awareness & donating to stomach cancer research.
I will be hosting a walk in Tampa on November 1 at 10:30am at Lettuce Lake Park. Please join or set up an event on November 1 in your area, donate money, or just share the facts about stomach cancer.
Thank you for sharing this and keeping Landon in your thoughts as he continues his fight!
