Why I Participate:
But then I turned to fight mode. I was going to get through this, whatever I needed to do, and live as long as I could to raise my daughter and see her grow up. My treatment was aggressive, to give me the best chance of survival. UCSD Moores Cancer Center, UCSD Comprehensive Breast Health Center, and UCSD Radiation Oncology were all amazing, beyond my expectations. After surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and infusions up to a year, I finished the toughest part. With many prayers and much support from family and friends, I made it through the treatment and many challenging days. Today, my hair has grown back and my energy level is up, helping me feel like my old self again. Now if only I could lose these few pounds... always a challenge ;-)
I'm proud to join Team Sempra|SDGE in the 2018 Padres Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer on November 17. Employees from across the Sempra Energy family of companies will come together to participate. All of the proceeds will stay locally and advance the groundbreaking work taking place in San Diego's award-winning cancer research centers: Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, Salk Institute for Biological Studies, Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego, and Sanford-Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute.
Please consider making a donation, of any size. 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go directly to fund cancer research in San Diego. Help me raise money for cancer research so that no one has to endure what I did. So that we can find a cure for cancer, be done with this suffering, and live long, happy, cancer-free lives.
Thank you for your support!
