I have joined the FIGHT against cancer!
We have committed to FIGHT ON in the face of cancer. Will you?
On September 14, we will be participating in The West Institute's signature fundraising event, West FIGHT ON to raise funds for cancer research, patient services, and community outreach. West FIGHT ON is a celebration of the cancer-fighting spirit of our community with cycling, running, and walking events as well as a post-race party and tributes to those who have faced cancer.
Last year during my own battle against lymphoma, I remember standing in the parking lot of the Clinic thinking, "What am I doing here?" I will never forget the hug I received from a total stranger when I arrived for my first treatment. She whispered in my ear “You’re in the right place. Let them carry you.” I am just now beginning to understand the sheer magnitude of her words. No one should ever feel alone in this battle against cancer, and your contributions keep that goal alive. From warm blankets to a hot cup of tea, the volunteers and staff at West Clinic make sure you feel as though you are the most important person in the room. Imagine your best friend, your family member, the person you hold most dearly receiving a diagnosis that is going to forever change their life. Now imagine the arms of a total stranger holding them, welcoming them, reassuring them. The family at West knows no limit. You are never alone with West, never.
As a warrior in the fight against cancer, every dollar we raise will go directly to fund the fight against cancer here in our community. By supporting our fundraising efforts, you are showing your committment to this critical cause and are ensuring that no cancer patient every fights alone.
Join us. And FIGHT ON: FIGHT FEARLESSLY!
