One of the toughest parts about watching someone you care about battle cancer is not knowing what you can do to help. 6 years ago while watching Fernando in his fight against cancer, I made the decision to start donating platelets.
Platelets only last for 5 days outside the body once donated, and are always in critical need, especially for many cancer patients in treatment. It is a great way to give back.
But there are many different ways to give back! Another way is by participating in the Jimmy Fund walk, which raises funds and awareness for cancer research. This year I will be walking the full 26.2 miles in honor of Fernando, and I would appreciate any support you could give me in my fundraising efforts!
