Well it has been a few months since I’ve updated my blog and a lot has gone on since I posted in November. Since it has now been almost 6 months since I have finished chemo my body has been adjusting even more. I don’t feel the chronic aching throughout my body like I felt during chemo and the few months afterwards. My fatigue has gradually improved, so much that I have been able to increase my work hours to almost full time. I was also able to travel over the holidays to visit family.
More recently I have been busy working with the Camarillo Kiwanis to put on a fundraiser 5K/10K to raise money for brain cancer research. It will be on April 12th, 2014 in Camarillo (runtocurebraincancer.com). I appreciate all of the support of family, friends, and members of the community who have helped to donate to this cause. I hope one day this debilitating disease will be eliminated.
Hi Robert, My name is Mary Gillette, and my 16 year old daughter, Natalie also has brain cancer. I have registered for Joggin for the Noggin, and have 36 of my friends signed up with me. I found out about Joggin for the Noggin just in time as we were all set to run the 5K in Los Angeles for Breakthrough Brain Tumor Association. We are calling ourselves, Team Headstrong! We are having t-shirts made with my daughter’s photo on the front and names of people we are joggin for on the back. I would like to include your name on the back of the t-shirt, but only with your permission. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks.
P.S. Of course I’ll have an extra one made for you!
Sorry for the late response, you can feel free to use my name in the future. This was my first year organizing a run and I am planning on doing it again next year. If you would like to be more involved in any aspects of the run next year (ie: marketing, organizing, planning) please let me know. I think we have pictures of your group that I can email to you. I will do that ASAP. Thank you for your support!
Yes, I would love to be on the comittee helping to set up this run! Thanks.
Was hoping to meet you at the race. Sorry I couldn’t find you and thank you for being the inspiration to organize this. I saw the flyer on a door in oncology when I was getting my 3 month post-surgery MRI. Hopefully they’ll find a cure with all the money we raised today.
Thanks for your support. Next year when we do the run again we will make sure we have a megaphone/microphone so I can introduce myself and organize other survivors together.
