Help Doreen Give Back to LLS

Tax deductible
I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma October of 2019. In my case my cancer tumor broke my T7 vertebrae which paralyzed me for two years. I went from a healthy individual to a person with cancer, a paraplegic, and a person with a spinal cord injury.

My journey has been challenging and hard. I was in a hospital setting for three months. After leaving the Intensive Care ward, I was moved the the Cancer ward at Duke University Medical Center.

During my time on the cancer ward a casework submitted my information to LLS. LLS is an amazing organization. They help me during the early stages of my cancer walk from that point on - I wanted to give back to the organization who helped me when I did not have a clue which way to go with my Multiple Myeloma diagnosis.

LLS provides temporary funding, a debit card for parking / transportation, education seminars and updates on Multiple Myeloma, resource information, and information (in my case) Multiple Myeloma. They are an AMAZING foundation.

NCO365 Oyster Club is not just a membership/social club but our goal is to help one oyster at a time. We are using our events to fundraise for LLS, The American Heart Association, HELP (Durham, NC) and community organizations.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (NIV)
(9) - Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor:
(10) - If either of them falls down, one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.

Life is difficult enough. It is far harder with a chronic or terminal illness. Let us do go while we can. There is no cure for Multiple Myeloma. I am living with cancer and I will to my last day. But, I am on maintenance chemo to keep me stable and as healthy as I can. I want to do the best I can, however I can until move on.

Thank you for listening to my cancer journey. Best to you all!
