As an Oncology Social Worker with Mercy Health and a support group facilitator at The Victory Center, I have witnessed how impactful The Victory Center’s services are for cancer patients (and their families!) in our area. The Victory Center offers programs and services that ensure patients do not face their journey alone.

I have also personally seen the impact cancer can have on an individual and their family. I was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2014 while getting my Master in Social Work at the University of Michigan (Go Blue!).

My cancer journey included an initial surgery to remove the tumor and affected testicle, chemotherapy to target metastatic tumors in my lymph nodes and a final out of town surgery to remove the affected lymph nodes. 

To celebrate 10 years of being cancer free I am going over the edge to help raise money for The Victory Center.

Please consider making a donation to help fund FREE programs and services for newly diagnosed cancer patients, cancer survivors and their families. 100% of funds raised will stay in the community.

Still reading? If I raise $2500 I’ll go over the edge in a squirrel costume.
