Why I want to help cure cancer
I've seen too many of my family and friends battle this dreaded disease, and the majority of them have lost the battle.
My Father passed away when I was 18, he came home from work sick one day (he hadn't had a sick day in 17 years with the Company). A week later he was diagnosed with stomach cancer with secondary in the esophagus. One month to the day, he passed away.
All but one of my Grandparents had to deal with some sort of cancer before they passed along with many of our family friends over the past 20 years.
The most recent thing that touched me was a childhood friend has recently been diagnosed. He was, and still is full of life, but his fight is real as he battles Cancer.
While I'm fit and able to, I want to do my bit to be able to help find a cure of this disease that has affected me and my family while continuing to affect so many others.
Congratulations on making such a remarkable commitment to a most worthy and important cause.
