Others will be inspired by your awesome poem:
HERE'S THE STORY:
Survivor one, survivor all...?
When cancer knocks we take the call
Some of us live and some of us die
Surgery cut, radiation fry
Chemo: no hair, tired as hell
And some are blessed: We're well! We're well!
So we raise funds and want to mentor
The Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center
Where help, support and love abound
Where tears and laughter and hugs surround
Us as we are treated and as we give care
Please help the Center stay right there
As we swim, bike and run, please be a part
Helping those in need with your hand and your heart!
In love and gratitude,
Iron Girl Swimmer on WheeeThreee!!! relay team
