We do it for Life with Cancer!  Joyce and Jen with friend and LWC retired Director, Drucilla “Doodie” Brethwaite (C)

“I support the Mantua Raccoon Run because Life With Cancer is a life-saving gem in our community.  Life With Cancer especially helped to save my quality of life when I was being treated for Triple Negative Breast Cancer in 2015-16, and they have continued to provide much needed support, education, and programming to me as a cancer survivor.  I have attended support groups, seminars, webinars, exercise classes, lectures, conferences, brunches, and educational programs, ALL of which improve the lives of people living with cancer. I will forever be grateful to Life With Cancer for their incredible work and I am now proud to partner with them as the co-founder of 2Unstoppable, providing SUPPORT and INSPIRATION for women with a cancer diagnosis to incorporate exercise into their lives.”

We did it for the 21st time–this time running the course and not just the event!

We did it to celebrate Doodie Brethwaite and her dedication to Life with Cancer.

We did it in memory of our friend, Roberta, and all those who have lost their battle with cancer.

We did it for all who are living with cancer

The Stassen Family

We ran in gratitude and honor of the amazing and generous Drucilla and all she gave to me and to our community; and we ran in memory of my dear friend Sue John to whom Life with Cancer meant so much and whose journey ended one year ago today. Thank you very much for bringing our community together virtually for a second time and for honoring Drucilla and supporting Life with Cancer! ~~ Monica Stassen
