On Saturday May 16th Cancer Support Community (CSC) will host its 6th Annual Hope Walk at Heather Farm in Walnut Creek. I will be walking to celebrate my 1 year Cancerversary! On May 15th 2019 my life was forever changed when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Despite being a nurse and working in the field of cancer research, I found myself paralyzed with fear. I was never one for support groups but I figured I had nothing to lose. I went to the Cancer Support Community and was blown away by not only the warmth and smiles that greeted me but the countless services that were available. I found myself surrounded by individuals who were on the same path I was. It was a path none of us chose, but one that we would walk together. We entered as strangers and left as friends and for that I will be forever grateful.
Last year, we had more than 1,000 walkers and raised more than 180,000 for CSC. Our goal this year is 1,250 walkers and 200,000 for CSC.
