Update as of 2020
This pix is our family....we were out to dinner celebrating Heather's 23rd birthday. It was November 16, 2013.
It was Greg, Curtis, Gretchen, Heather, and me (Amy). Heather had just finished her intensive treatment at the center
for Melanoma. I (Amy) had just been told I have Multiple Myeloma. Wow....here we are....
Take us to now.. Heather is doing wonderful....she completed her treatments through 2013 and she works very hard at the club and The Yoga Room she opened behind the club and she is a CPA and works full time at her grandparent's great construction company: JF Price Co , Bristol Brothers, Plymouth Quarries, & Weathervane Development in Weymouth. I'm sure you've seen the JF Price trucks around....or seen the beautiful mulch at the club....from JF Price.
The doctors are amazed at Heather and how wonderful she is!
I (Amy) had a stem cell transplant in 2013 and was in Brigham & Women's for 2 and 1/2 weeks. When I came home, because my immune system was wiped out by this, I was in complete isolation (other than immediate family). Now I do have much more "freedom"....being at the club & teaching & seeing all our wonderful members!! Mine is a chronic disease. It is sometimes compared to Diabetes, where I will have to monitor my blood and undergo various treatments the rest of my life. But I am so blessed as there are many treatments that have come about the last few years..a dozen! So it's wonderful!
More treatments for all of us with cancer are coming down the road. We think of it like this:
"There is no cure for the common cold. When we get a cold, we work through it. We appreciate life more when we don't have one"
Having cancer is similar,but - of course - it is on a much larger scale. No, there are no cures for cancer ....or Diabetes or arthritis or....the common cold. But we all are handed something in life and we all must perservere. We all move on with optimism and positivity. It is the ONLY way.
There are so many of YOU - who had cancer and beat it (some of you..it was years ago!!) - and are now doing just great!!
You are heroes to us.
We are soooo grateful for the wonderful, caring cards we have received over the years.
Thank you. It means soooo much.
Thank you for your prayers. You are wonderful to us.
God IS listening. We know it. Thank you.
Many of you have witnessed the fundraisers we hold for cancer research. Our son Curtis ran the Boston Marathon this year with his girlfriend Darci Vierra on the Dana Farber Team and together they raised over $27,000!
Heather and I have raised money for research when we did the Maine State Triathlon and we've walked Hopkinton to Boston in the Jimmy Fund walk and Gretchen & Greg have helped us with outdoor yoga (21 Sun Salutations) and over the years we have raised over $25,000
We have witnessed first-hand what research money can do! More treatments arise!
