On Sunday, October 4, I will be participating in the Newton-Wellesley Hospital's Virtual Hope Walks, benefiting the Mass General Cancer Center at Newton-Wellesley.
October 4 is a VERY special date for me. Not only is it my grandmother's birthday (she would have been 119 this year!) but it also marks the 1 year anniversary of my last treatment at MGH Cancer Center at Newton-Wellesley!
The amazing team of nurses, surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, therapists, psychologists, technicians, and volunteers saved my life. They gave me hope at every stage in my fight. They held me when I was terrified and cried and hugged me with joy at the end (I cried then, too). They laughed with me and answered all my questions. They made me believe I would beat this horrible disease and they were right!
Now they need my help. And I'm asking for yours.
Now more than ever, we need your support to raise funds for the Mass General Cancer Center at Newton-Wellesley. Your participation will help us continue to offer a range of programs and integrative support services including massage, reiki, psychosocial counseling and more to patients with a cancer diagnosis.
While we won’t be walking side-by-side this year, we will still be walking together.
Please consider making a donation to my fundraising page or ask me how to get involved in Virtual Hope Walks. Thank you for your support!
