THE STORY:

Elizabeth Mitchell wrote -

This is Liz Mitchell, at BIAH Athens. A few of us former Merial/current BIAH employees in Athens and Duluth decided to get together and do the Athens Tri 2 Beat Cancer Triathlon together. We figured it would be a great way for some co-workers to be healthy and work together to achieve a goal.


For me there is an even more important reason to support this event. In the last year my sister has been through treatment for ovarian cancer. She is doing well but the experience was eye-opening to say the least. Fighting cancer is not only emotionally and physically exhausting, but the financial implications are enormous. There are co-pays and medications, transportation to doctor appointments, time off from work, and many other costs. My sister was unable to work for a year and was fortunate that she had the support of family and friends, as well as good insurance, to help get through everything. Not everyone can afford to not work and it is terrible to think that the financial stress adds to the emotional toll of cancer. The Cancer Foundation of Northeast Georgia helps to alleviate the financial burden for cancer patients in Georgia. I think this is a great charity, and I hope you can give to help support their efforts!
