This past January - with no stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) experience and a dad who'd just been diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma - I committed to paddling 21 miles and raising $2,000 as part of the 2017 TYLER'S Dam That Cancer event coming up on June 12.

For me, this was a way to feel as though I was contributing in what otherwise felt like a pretty helpless scenario. Though Dad's tumor was contained and treatable, I knew he was in for an agonizing battle through chemo/radiation, and I knew that I wouldn't be able to be there with him day in and day out as I would have liked. My 21 miles will be in honor of him, my greatest hero, and Mom, who has selflessly put her life on hold to care for him every step of the way.

Dad is on the road to recovery, and now feels comfortable letting us share our story. My intention is to use this experience to fuel a new-found sense of gratitude towards life and health.

 

Help me support The Flatwater Foundation by making a donation. Your donation will provide access to mental health care for individuals and families touched by a cancer diagnosis that would otherwise not be able to get the care they need. I am working to raise at least $2,000 to embark on this 21-mile journey to take a stand; won't you please consider sponsoring one of my 21 miles with a donation? This will ensure we meet our goal, and will help so many in need.

The process is fast, easy, and secure. I truly appreciate any support you can provide, and we hope you can celebrate with us all on June 12, at the LCRA Lawn at Tom Miller Dam (adjacent to Hula Hut). Learn more at tylersdtc.com

If you can’t make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter. Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to my page!

Thank you, thank you!
