August 8, 2011 I lost my best friend. Most of you knew him as Steve, but to me he was dad. On Saturday, November 3rd I will be walking for him. Please help me raise money in his memory so that no one else has to miss their loved one every day like me. No amount is too small, it is all big, as it all goes to help fight this ugly disease. This is near and dear to my heart and I thank you all in advance!
Love, Jody, Jim, K-mom and the entire Welgoss family!
No Stomach For Cancer is kicking off Stomach Cancer Awareness Month with our 1st Annual No Stomach For Cancer Walk, as we work “to support research and unite the caring power of people worldwide affected by stomach cancer.”
The No Stomach For Cancer 2012 Walk is not an event that takes place on a designated course at a specific location with a start line, a set course, measured miles, and a finish line.
It is a day on which you are asked to wear an NSFC 2012 Walk shirt and wristband while you “walk the course” of your day – whatever this is for you, whatever you want it to be – uniting in action and spirit worldwide while bringing visibility and increased awareness about stomach cancer into your community.
We believe this is a simple yet impactful way to take forward steps and raise awareness as it allows people around the world to work toward a common goal with a united spirit, knowing that others are focused on spreading the word about stomach cancer on this same day.
