Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
As we age, we have a lot of natural progressions that let us know we must surely be getting wiser (older), such as working, driving, careers, weddings, unfortunately there are also the negative ones, cancer being one. We go from having cancer diagnoses that are typically further away from us, either in age or relationship, to happening to people who suddenly are the same age as us, and right beside us.
We always knew that it was there lurking, we hear about it all the time, it just never seemed so real. Unfortunately, very real it is of course.
When my wife Trish was diagnosed, we were both in a little bit of disbelief, it didn’t really seem to make sense, and it certainly didn’t seem reasonable. Once the diagnosis became real, there was a semblance of a pathway to follow, don’t look to far ahead just trudge along and trust what is being asked / told to do. Simplistic I have made it sound, and simplistic it is not, but I hope you get the gist.
In life we don’t get to choose the hurdles thrown in our way, but we do get to control how to figure out how to best get over them, and in the process we hopefully get helped in many ways. Help can come from so many ways, from the amazing treatment options, doctors, nurses and support staff, to the support of family, friends, co-workers, neighbours, etc, to the internal responses that we have built that make us more resilient and prepared for things we run across every day. It is amazing to see Trish go through this with such strength and determination while being strong for us all.
My response to this is to try and be a little better. Maybe we can become slightly more aware, slightly more healthy, slightly more empathetic and maybe even raise a little cash for some cause. That’s what I can do. If you are reading this you are more aware, so in this I have already succeeded and I thank you for getting to this point. If you can live everyday with a little more fullness, bonus, and if you are able to support this cause financially then awesome. I understand that there are many different causes, and so many different things that we can do to make life better for us and those around us. Whatever that better may be that you can do, I encourage you to start doing it today. Cause that’s all we are guaranteed. The Now.
The most important part of this is to share with others the joy of life, and to help those that you can. To help those that you can, you need to be around and be as healthy as possible. So, like me that hates to run, I am learning to love running, or at least the satisfaction of being done my run. So do some small thing for you starting today, and you will be doing stuff for those around you.
If I can run 5k without stopping, which we will find out soon enough, I suspect you all can do anything. I am also taking some side bets to raise more cash, for instance wearing a pats jersey, so if you think of some thing that would make you laugh let me know and Ill see if I can accomplish that task.
Love. Health. Elway.
