On June 8th, I'll be walking with family and friends in memory of my cousin Victor who passed away last month from cancer. Even in his last days he continued to preach the value of love, friendship, and pursuing your life's passions. It's been a difficult year for the family, but we know coming together for this event to support others who are struggling with this disease is a way to keep his legacy alive. We are also walking in honor of our cousin, Thomas, who is undergoing his second round of chemo as we speak.
We're participating in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, which is a 24 hour walk around a track. The entire family (we roll deep!) is camping out and completing the race together. I know money is tight and we're not asking for a big donation, but if you could give anything, we'd really appreciate it.
When Victor was diagnosed last August, the doctors gave him one month to live. But with the new advances in cancer research, they were able to keep him alive for eight invaluable months. We know that the more we can give to this, the closer we are to finding a cure, which can turn someone's eight months into a long and healthy life.
If you're not able to donate, forward along our team page to others and send us your positive vibes.
