Last month, I held a fundraiser and remission party called “Kiss Cancer Goodbye” here in my community. More than 150 people came to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, eat good food at the Smoke Rise Village Inn and dance to music by the Flying Mueller Brothers and the Sugar Hill Gang. They also came to hear my speech, “If Cancer is a Gift, Where Can I Return it?”, about my battle with non Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
My friend Kanokan Sookaram caught the festivities on film, so that everyone who couldn’t be there — and even those who were — can enjoy.
First, here’s my speech, “If Cancer is a Gift, Where Can I Return it?”, followed by a video about the party:
Pass it on!
