Chris Jones (father, participant) & Madison Jones (daughter, past participant)
My daughter expressed her experience which was also aligned with mine: "The Cancer Support Community gave me a safe place to share my experience with a group who would understand. They provided me with tools to manage the stress and the uncertainty and I also believe they led me to acceptance. I am part of a great group of people. We laugh, we cry, and we are there for one another, which is so valuable since cancer can be a lonely experience."
Unfortunately Madison passed on in 2018. Before her mortal departure, she wrote:
"I have been surviving cancer since 2013, and I am sad to say that this journey will soon be over. One of my favorite quotes from Stuart Scott who also passed from cancer reads: 'When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live. I know I did exactly that. People may say I have lost my battle against cancer, but with the amount of love I have been loved, I can't possibly see how that's true".
Stand with CSCVVSB and help those impacted by cancer in our community gain the support and strength they need in the fight against cancer.
Please consider making a gift today to CSCVVSB in honor of our 30th anniversary.
