My Fundraising Progress: $1,065
Why am I doing the Believe Walk?
Dear family and friends,
This summer marked my 15 year anniversary of victory over cancer. Back in October 2003, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Testicular Cancer. After two surgeries, four rounds of chemotherapy, and many prayers, I was able to beat it. In 2014, after remaining clear for 10 years, I had my final visit with the oncologist.
In solidarity with those who are currently in the thick of their battle with cancer, I have organized a team from The First Baptist Church of Redlands to take part in the Stater Brothers Charities Believe Walk. The Believe Walk will happen October 6, 2019 and will raise money for cancer treatment and research here locally.
Through past Believe Walks, more than $5 million has been raised to help organizations like Redlands Community Hospital, St. Bernardine’s Medical Center, and Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital Oncology. It has supported Michelle’s Place, a breast cancer resource center in Temecula; the Cancer Resource Center at Loma Linda University Hospital; and other local resource centers that offer hope and support to those in the throes of cancer. The Believe Walk is a community organized, grassroots event that has made a real difference in the lives of local cancer patients.
Since so many people we love have been touched by cancer, would you join me in this worthy cause? I’m asking those who know me to consider making a donation of $15 to mark this anniversary, but you can make a donation of any amount, large or small.
Thank you in advance for your support.
