My sister just passed away on 12/20/2011 of MDS (Myelodyplastic Syndrome) http://marrow.org/Patient/Disease_and_Treatment/About_Your_Disease/MDS/Myelodysplastic_Syndromes_(MDS).aspx and I watched her struggle and fight for her life since her stem-cell transplant on 10/19/2011. She fought a hard battle, she didn't want to die, she didn't have a choice. She is just one of the victims of this disease of cancer. My cousin, Lacy Beasley passed away in 2000 from Ewing Sarcoma cancer, leaving behind a husband and a 2-year-old daughter, another victim. And my best friend Rhesa Ferigno fought for her life for several years, battling Hodgkin Disease, going into remission 3 times, and the 4th time it came back with a vengeance...she left behind a husband and 4 beautful little girls. My dear friend, due to privacy reasons, is a non-hodgkin lymphoma survivor and without her in my life today, I don't think I would have gotten through the ups and downs of the loss of my sister. So I am RAISING MONEY for this cause and RUNNING for this cause because I BELIEVE IN IT and I am so sad of the losses. I know we can't save everyone, this is reality, but let's start by raising enough money so we can to continue to save the one's we can!
