It’s Better to Give Than Receive... But What Happens When You Receive More Than You Give?
Saturday, May 3 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

On October 12, 2009, I heard the three most dreaded words that a doctor can utter to their patient, “You have Cancer.” Life was good; I was in my car driving to the golf course with my son to play a round of golf. How quickly it all changes. When does it sink in that I might die since everyone is lead to believe that cancer is a death sentence. I am lucky; I did not receive a death sentence from cancer but was given a new life, a whole bunch different but still an awfully good life. I got to witness my oldest son get married and seven months ago got to hold my first grandchild. When you first hear those three words from the doctor your life does change, you have the opportunity to realize what your life was and then you get a chance to look at what it will be. We cannot change the past but we can impact the future. It all depends on what we want our life to be. As an “experienced cancer patient” I can offer help and support to those who are battling through their treatment, I can offer encouragement to someone who is suffering as I did. I can try to make another’s life a little better. That is what I chose to do.
