Help me celebrate by giving the gift of time to another family facing cancer!
My 50/7 Pretty in Pink celebration is not only celebrating my milestone birthday and cancer survivorship it is also an opportunity for me to pay forward the gift of time my family received in 2013 from For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation.
One of the most difficult things in my life was being told that I had cancer. I was scared for myself but more so for my boys. As a single parent I didn't know how would we cope? How would we get through this? Would we get through this? For Pete's Sake gave us the opportunity once my treatments were over to celebrate being a family again....by going to the Happiest Place on Earth...Disney World!
After almost a full year of surgery, chemo and radiation, For Pete's Sake provided me and my kids an opportunity to take a break from the craziness of cancer and to be normal again. The trip provided an opportunity for the boys to see their mother be their mom again...smiling, laughing and living life.
My hope, with all of my friend’s support, is to raise enough money to give back the trip that we were given to allow another family facing cancer that opportunity to reconnect and start living life again. My goal is to raise $5,000 to give another family a Florida respite.
I hope you will consider making a donation in honor of my birthday and survivorship! Your support is so meaningful to me and will spread love and joy to a family deserving of a break from their cancer journey.
My words of advice for other families facing cancer is to celebrate the wins and good days, no matter how little or small. Be thankful for those little wins, as it can take a while to get over the physical and emotional scars that cancer gives. Live life to the fullest...Do all those things you have always wanted. Don't hold back from living life.
