WHAT DOES OCTOBER MEANS TO US?

VOLUME 3: JOHNNY SHARES

Q:  One word to describe why October is special to you 

A: “Relief”

Q:  Can you elaborate on the above? Since she survived, is she still doing well? If not, did it change anything with you as far as how you view cancer?

A: Mom is doing great! She is in remission for 6 years now. Since this has hit so close to home I have found myself donating and volunteering a lot more then I had previously.

Q:  What would you like to see happen this year during October? In the future? 

A: I’d like to see more people recognize this awful disease, even if it does not affect them directly. In the future; this is not the only disease out there. I would like if more people stood up for all different kinds of illnesses!

Q: What do you think your mother would have to say about your involvement? 

A: I know that she would say the older I’ve got, the more I’ve learned to give back to community and help others around me. I’ve participated in the Breast Cancer Walks, donated time, and ran events to help out other families! I know she would say she is proud of me, because I’m sure damn proud of her!
