Lets look for some inspirational words from someone that is more challenged than us…
“…I hate the disease (and hate all cancer). I find it offensive that at this time, and century it is such a struggle to obtain funds for continued research, that people are ashamed, feel we deserved it! We need to fight, to educate, and inform people and legislators. This has been too long in my family (I am the third direct generation) and in the world. We need to defeat lung cancer and I want to be a part of it. When I walked through the balloon arch last year at the finish line, with all those people cheering, I knew we can BEAT this.
By year three after diagnosis, I started to see life differently. Very much aware of the chances for recurrence, since no one in my family had survived long in the past. I began to see that regardless of cancer we never know when our life will end and we should live it as if our last day is tomorrow. So our Free to Breathe team name is Dance…Sing…Live! This is shortened from “Dance as if no one were watching, sing as if no one were listening, and live every day as if it were your last!”
