Yesterday, I lost yet another friend, Valerie, to Angiosarcoma. She had recently been married when diagnosed last year. Her husband is a big, loving teddy bear who never thought twice about staying right by her side. All dreams of a long life together and children vanished as the chemo ravaged her body.
Yes, volunteering with Angiosarcoma Awareness, Inc. has opened my heart to a lot of hurt. But what I gain from knowing these wonderful people far makes up for that, even if they are gone too, too fast.
I am relatively healthy. I need to act. Therefore, on February 8, my family will be driving two hours to the nearest Cycle for Survival center in Equinox, NJ where I will get on a stationary bike and peddle as long as I can until the other take over for me. I shouldn't do this...I'm overweight, out of shape, may hurt my back and be out of work, but I must.
Please donate. Thank you, pondhopper, cathyteach2 and eyesthatslay for already doing so.
