An e-mail I recieved-
Thirteen years ago today, I was diagnosed with cancer. Every year
since then, October 2 has served as a reminder to me that even though
cancer left my body, it will always be a part of my life.
And thanks to the commitment of LIVESTRONG supporters like you,
what was a personal anniversary is now a day that the entire community
can rally around.
It’s a day when we come together and wear yellow, attend events and
renew ourcommitment to fight cancer for as long as it takes—and to do
our part to raiseawareness of the 28 million people fighting cancer
LIVESTRONG Day is a declaration that we won’t quit and
we won’t retreat.
That’s why events today will have a real impact by making our
voice even louder:
With each passing year, it becomes clearer that one day we’ll reach
our goal of a world without cancer.
So many survivors are standing tall right now. So many friends, family
members, and supporters are providing the strength and courage it takes
to fight this disease.
The world needs to hear that defeating cancer is our highest priority. I
appreciate all that you’re doing today to make that global statement loud
P.S. Watch this powerful video LIVESTRONG put together showing what
this day means—and carry this message with you today:
