Saying thanks to our “unsung heroes”
10/17/13 San Diego, CA USA.
The people who support a person undergoing treatment for a tumor/cancer deserve recognition. They helplessly stand by and watch their loved ones get weaker in front of their eyes. What many people don’t realize is that when someone gets diagnosed with a tumor/cancer, A LOT of people are affected!
Of course the patient is affected the most, but the people who are on “stand-by” as a loved one get weaker need to be recognized. It is frustrating to watch a loved one’s struggle against these diseases. There are no words to express the gratitude for people who were at our side through the rough times. The support received from these special people, can easily be taken for granted. They deserve recognition. We decided that there needs to be an event organized by survivors to honor the people that were there for us. We wanted to honor our friends, family, and fellow survivors
with unique toasts! The focus of the event is not on the survivors, but on the people that helped us through a very difficult time!
Check out the videos from the 2013 event:

These diseases transform everyone. We can decide how we are transformed. There are 3 options:
- dive – psychologically succumb to the disease
- survive – weather the storm of an intimidating diagnosis
- thrive – become proactive in the fight against these diseases
Patients cannot learn to “thrive” alone. Support is needed from family, friends, and fellow survivors. On 10/17/13, we wanted to recognize these people for helping us through a very difficult time!
Please help us continue to grow! We are now planning more international speaking engagements! We could really use your support. You can be a part of a new strategy to fight ALL tumors/cancer… ATTITUDE… this ain’t no pity party.
We’ll send you some TUMORS SUCK stickers and put you in the next video with your online donation!
