Awareness, Service, & Action · Faith · Quotes

Hope.

Christopher Reeve once noted,

“Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.”

There are two days left of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. I’m choosing hope. Hope that people will see their own ability to make a difference. Hope that awareness has been created. Hope that many registered as bone marrow donors (I know my roommate did, love her!). Hope that people will not forget the lives of children living with cancer… hope that people will not forget the many for whom I raced two weeks ago: the blood cancer fighters, survivors, and angels.

On race day, the announcer said something that I never thought of before. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is an organization that is HOPING to go out of business one day. They are working toward the day that they can shut their doors because their services will not be required anymore… the day that a cure is found and cancer officially loses the race.

Hope for that day. PRAY for that day.

  1. I *did* look into registering…but according to their rules, I’m not allowed to for a year. So when they have the free sign up again, I’ll try again.
