“Several months before I was born my Aunt Patty died of breast cancer – she was 29 years old. To honor her, my mother named me Jennifer Patricia.
Three years ago several family members gathered as my grandmother was dying of lung cancer. Watching someone you love fade away and saying prayers by her bedside has a profound impact on how you view death. Then two years ago, my mentor, close friend and former college professor died of cancer two days prior to my 30th birthday. Even now there are emails in my in-box from her that I can’t bring myself to delete, because another one will never take its place.
I walk for them.”
You can support The American Cancer Society and Team IZEA here.
More than 15 people will walk with Team IZEA in the May 18 Downtown Orlando Relay for Life, in a partnership with the American Cancer Society to sponsor more birthdays!
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
