Thirteen years ago today, I was diagnosed with cancer. Every year
since then, October 2 has served as a reminder to me that even though
cancer left my body, it will always be a part of my life.
And thanks to the commitment of LIVESTRONG supporters like you,
what was a personal anniversary is now a day that the entire community
can rally around. It’s a day when we come together and wear yellow,
attend events and renew our commitment to fight cancer for as long
as it takes—and to do our part to raise awareness of the 28 million
people fighting cancer worldwide.
LIVESTRONG Day is a declaration that we won’t quit and
we won’t retreat. That’s why events today will have a real impact
by making our voice even louder: www.livestrong.org/livestrongday
With each passing year, it becomes clearer that one day we’ll
reach our goal of a world without cancer.
So many survivors are standing tall right now. So many friends,
family members, and supporters are providing the strength and courage
it takes to fight this disease.
The world needs to hear that defeating cancer is our highest priority. I
appreciate all that you’re doing today to make that global statement loud
P.S. Watch this powerful video LIVESTRONG put together showing
what this day means—and carry this message with you today:
Thank you, Lance. You are such an inspiration to many! Now I'm off to my
support group at The Wellness Community. Have a great day, everyone!
I am LIVINGSTRONG today.
