Losing my wife to a hereditary cancer that was very preventable was unbearably heartbreaking. And the heartache is never more keenly felt by my daughter and me than during the holidays.
My wife is no longer alive to celebrate the holidays because life-saving genetic sequencing information was not shared with numerous at-risk family members. So, in memory of my wife, I have become a very determined hereditary cancer awareness and prevention advocate in the hope that I might save a life or two and prevent a hell of a lot of suffering and sorrow.
As part of my love and advocacy, I create content for Cure Today, a publisher of cancer care resources. For the holidays I wrote a story that I hope you will take a moment to read.
And accompanying my story is a holiday art activity with a message about cancer that I hope you’ll share...
