More than 3,000 people participated in the race to raise money for research at the Moffitt Cancer Center, including a team called the Sarcoma Speed Demons.
Although the Sarcoma Alliance needs to raise money for itself, and we have our own fundraisers, we welcome the chance to participate in any event where we can give people information.
At Miles for Moffitt, I was grateful to the University of South Florida students who provided antiseptic gel, gloves and water so that I could catheterize in a portable toilet. (I had left my house without the proper supplies.) As more people with cancer survive, we will need to keep in mind their health needs as we plan events.
An example of that is Moffitt's fundraiser for sarcoma research July 18. We had planned on a morning at the beach, but the weather has been so scorching that the staff decided instead on bowling in air-conditioned comfort. Come join us! -- Suzie Siegel
