I hope everyone enjoyed the last blog. I had such a great time at the Villanova game in spite of the loss. However, I have to be honest and say there was a little part of me rooting for Dr. Cognetti’s Hoyas for just 1 game. I saw him for a follow-up this past week and he didn’t let me forget it.
The great news from this past week after seeing almost all of my doctors (Dr. Cognetti, Dr. Axelrod, Dr. Franklin) is that I continue to be cancer free. My Jefferson medical team are extremely happy with my progress. I have 3 more weeks of physical therapy and have finally hit the 150lb mark.
As you know from my last blog, I accepted an invitation to be the honorary survivor chairperson for the Manahawkin Relay For Life. The event takes place June 3rd and 4th.
My parents and I attended the Relay kick-off on Tuesday February 15th where I gave a brief speech. I will be giving another speech at the survivor dinner on June 3rd. The Relay begins at 7pm at the Southern Regional track in Manahawkin and ends at 7am June 4th. It’s my intention to walk for all 12 hours of the Relay.
I’m working on final details with the chairpersons for the Relay For Life, American Cancer Society & David’s Dream & Believe board of directors. However, I want you to reserve the dates now (June 3rd and 4th) because we will be creating a team. You’ve been by my side throughout my battle and I’m asking you to stand with me again. Actually, I’m asking you to walk with me, donate & fundraise. DD&BCF will set up a campsite with food, refreshments & various other fun activities.
Final details coming soon!
Dream & Believe,
