It’s October and that has come to mean breast cancer awareness month. As some of you may already know, my family has been personally affected by that awful disease. During the initial moments, you’re forced to process and learn a lot of medical terminology as well as the types of treatments, procedures, and medications involved.
The gravity of the situation along with all of that information is at times overwhelming, but through faith, prayers, and encouragement from others you somehow find a way to face each day.
I remember arriving home from work on one of those days and my wife Nikki saying, “I received a gift card for gas.” I said, “That’s very nice,” and asked, “Who was it from?” She said, “There’s this woman named Elisa Guida. She’s a breast cancer survivor who started a charity selling jewelry made from musician’s guitar strings. It’s called Strings for a Cure.” Absolutely amazing concept I thought.
During the weeks, months and years that followed we were blessed with several more gas cards which really helped when driving Nikki to Pittsburgh 42 of 52 weeks in 2010.
In December of 2013 we moved into a new home. One night right before the holiday there was a knock on the door. It was a smiling group of people we had never met before. They walked in with their arms filled with dozens of cookies and a handful of gift cards to buy our son presents for Christmas! All of those moments continue to resonate with me. That’s why we want to help them continue to help others.
