Unfortunately the Goode side of our family has faced many forms of cancer including my father who lost his battle with lung cancer in 2015. My Dad, also Bill Goode, never gave up and fought to the bitter end. He was 69 and had recently retired. It was hard for him and us to not have the opportunity to enjoy his retirement in good health. Over the past year a number of friends who are in their prime have been diagnosed with various forms of cancer. It is shocking and unfair to see close friends and their families face the brutality of cancer at young ages.
This year I am walking for my Dad and our friends recently diagnosed to raise money for the Jimmy Fund's patient advocacy fund. All funds raised go directly to supporting the care of the patients and their families including treatment, housing, and counseling. Please join us in the fight against cancer. New forms of treatment are being discovered and approved rapidly. We need to get a cure for each type of cancer so that family and friends can live full lives.
