Why I Participate:
The hardship caused by cancer is not limited to those who have the disease-it affects everyone in their close vicinity and more. The six degrees of separation states that all humans are six steps or less away from one another on a chain, and that friend-to-friend messages can reach anyone in the world in less than 6 steps. I believe this pertains to the spreading of negative emotions associated with cancer as well because I know I am not speaking for myself when I say I get emotionally distraught upon hearing that a loved one of someone in my network has been recently diagnosed with or has passed away from cancer.
Luckily, however, major breakthroughs in immunotherapy, gene mapping, and other advanced methodologies have rendered us the edge in this battle. There is and abundance of hope for those who have the disease as well as future generations who may encounter the disease down the road. Every dollar we raise is a piece of ammunition that can be utilized to disarm and eventually dismantle this beast. However, this can only be done if we collaborate-so lets get to work!
Thank you for your love and support!
