Special Thanks!

Dearest Supporters, words cannot begin to express the love I have for everyone who has contributed to help my family. I am humbled and inspired by your support, especially from strangers who have generously given because of your connection to my story; I am honored to have you in my life. My heart is filled with love and gratitude. Thank you!

Please continue to share my story among your friends and on social media. I have made it my mission to make sure that cancer, especially colorectal cancer, which remains symptomless until very late stages, is eradicated. By sharing statistical anomalies like my case we can educate the community that cancer can happen to anyone. Thank you for sharing and giving so freely and without expectation.

With love, Laurel
