I was most fearful prior to my diagnosis. I knew something was wrong with my health but was not certain what it was. Once diagnosed, I then had a plan. Albeit a treatment plan. At that point I could focus on what had to be done and I kept saying to myself "I've got this". It was hard at times and I was often scared but I focused on getting through the treatment and getting well again.
What motivates me to support the LLSC is knowing I am not alone in this battle and giving back where I can. The light the night was also a very inspirational event that took part in with friends and family. The positivity stayed with me for a long time
The most memorable part of being involved with the LLSC is the support, positivity, and low pressure to perform or contribute. It seems very collegial and a lot less clique than many other cancer organizations.
It's a great cause and it has a very family feeling to it. Very personal.
