It is LIVESTRONG Challenge time!!! :)

LIVESTRONG CHALLENGE AUSTIN TX 2017

NEXT WEEKEND!!! ------Sunday, Oct 22, 2017
I am at 70% of my fundraising goal.  Please help! 



Dear Family and Friends,

Thank you for believing in LIVESTRONG’s mission: to change how the world fights cancer. That includes:
  • Helping us navigate cancer’s practical and emotional impact
  • Enabling the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program in communities all over the country to help survivors recover after treatment
  • Inventing the future of cancer care at the LIVESTRONG Cancer Institutes at the Dell Medical School
  • Taking the fight global to help cancer survivors everywhere with knowledgel and resources. 

Since my stage 4 diagnosis I have been fighting for quality of life.  Everytime I think we have the chemo and radiation complicaitons under control, it comes and attacks again, even more agressively.  

My Lupus is made worse by radiation and once upon a time my Lupus was in remission, then came back with avengence post cancer treatments.   

It has been hard on me, but also on my family who witness how hard I fight on a daily basis.  Caregivers are my link between chair and skateboard.  Since my accident they have even more to do and I appreciate them .... more than words can say.  But we all got hit with this cancer at different stages, and from surgeries, chemo, radiation, brachytherapy, and more surgeries, and more treatement, LIVESTRONG was there for us every step.  I ordered a guide book set, a great tool to keep you focused on LIVING.... and never looked back.  Andre knowing there was caregiver support felt like he was better armed for the our fight.  Yes OUR fight.  Cancer takes an army to fight.   This year Andre joined the leader team and was more involved than ever with LIVESTRONGS mission to help those affected by cancer now! 

 

Back in May, TEAMNANNY held their 5th annual fundraising event benefiting LIVESTRONG.  Next weekend is the Ride for the Roses Weekend/LIVESTRONG Challenge.  I will be virutally doing the ride over the next week on my skateboard as I cannot do anything requiring too much effort all in one day, on the advice of my medical team.  I am prouldy  going to wear my Cyclists Combatting Cancer team jersey thanks to a leader who got it up to me in Canada in time! #SuperGratefulBobTushop 

I’m 3/4 of the way to my goal of $1,500.00 and the event is still a week away.  

I’m fully committed to helping those fighting cancer. If you’re able to help, I greatly appreciate your contribution to LIVESTRONG.

The easiest way to give (American Funds) is online at:

Alternatively, you can print and mail this donation form directly, or I will relay checks made out to LIVESTRONG Foundation.  Please note that LIVESTRONG donations are in U.S.A. funds.

Thanks again for helping to change the way the world fights cancer. We make a difference together.

With gratitude,
Kath & André

TOO MANY OF OUR LOVED ONES TOO SOON!

 My story has been pretty transparent. I had stage 4 UPSC a rare mixed uterine cancer with a very dismal outcome.  I continue to fight every single day.  
But I am still alive 11 years later to make a difference! 

TOO MANY OF YOUR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS RAN OUT OF TIME!  

Over the past few years we as a community have raised thousands of dollars for the fight against cancer..... and the kids want to make sure we continue to make a

This year alone we have had loved ones diagnosed with cancer, and lost family & friends! Through these heartbreaks we should be inspired to honor those we have lost and those warriors still fighting by our volunteer work and fundraising efforts!
