          Recognizing our forum and its members past and present

          I arrived at the LIVESTRONG Village on the campus of Montgomery County Community College on Friday afternoon and one of my first orders of business was to leave cards honoring the fight or remembering the lives lost of many people. I also put up this card in honor of our forum family members, past and present, who have had to fight this disease or help a loved one facing it:

          I'm back home now after meeting up with many friends and meeting some new people, including two very kind and thoughtful people from LIVESTRONG itself. And a personal triumph for me was running a personal best on the 10K course in just under 48 minutes. I caught up with a few fellow TC survivors, including Joe from Already Balders, but regret that I won't see Scott and other riders I know when they set off on their bike rides on Sunday morning. The atmosphere was great and I had the sense of being surrounded by people who were truly committed to the core set of goals of the Foundation to help people at various stages of cancer treatment and survivorship. For anyone here who is looking for a way to transform the terrible experience of cancer into something more positive by doing something for others, LIVESTRONG very much is something they should consider. This is my sixth Philadelphia Challenge since my second TC diagnosis and the fact that I keep feeling drawn back every year to participate and to fundraise for the organization says a lot about its power to turn surviving cancer into something empowering. Very best wishes to everyone riding on Sunday!
