Yesterday was a long but exciting day for CSC and the entire Breakaway from Cancer team. We drove to the scenic Big Bear Lake bright and early for Stage 6 of the race, where we met up with our local affiliate Gilda’s Club Desert Cities.
At our booth, we ran into a mix of cancer survivors and their caregivers, friends and family. Take for instance the family we talked to whose father in Arizona was recently diagnosed with cancer or the police officer who gathered information about our local affiliate to share with his fellow officers. And then there’s the boy who came by to learn how he could help out his friend who was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer. He was surprised to hear about all the support we have for young adults affected by cancer.
Many people find their way to the Breakaway from Cancer tent not knowing exactly who we are or what we do, but hopefully all our guests will keep us in mind if they ever need any of the free services of CSC and our partners. As they say, knowledge is power!
