One main goal of mine is to bring about awareness of this cancer. I have recently met with folks from Memorial Hospital Foundation and they do annual events to raise funds for cancer patients. All funds raised from the events goes to help cancer patients with whatever financial needs they may have. In July 2013 they held their annual “Circle of Hope” Classic 10k run in Colorado Springs. This is an event done in conjunction with the Grand Prix running club and my husband supported me in my efforts by completing this 10K run. Throughout this event I believe I was able to help raise awareness of Thyroid Cancer and if I could affect even one person to be aware of this rapidly growing cancer I feel that is success; if you touch one person’s life it can then result in a trickle effect of many more becoming aware!
