One of the women I met at the Relay for Life kickoff was a volunteer for the American Cancer Society. A piece of paper and a few emails later, and I’m checking out the ACS Cancer Action Network. Interesting.
I can’t Race for a Cure or Relay for Life this year; my back just won’t allow it. For whatever reason (chemo, radiation, just plain heaviness of that tumor I was carrying around), the spine is weak and won’t support me running. The PT says no way. Not yet. Much more work to do.
I’m bummed. But maybe I was meant to do something else instead.
I can’t run, but I can walk.
I can talk. I can write. I can advocate. I can visit my congresspeople and talk to them about the importance of finding a cure. We must find a cure.
