Hi everyone, thanks for visiting us! I am Apryll Noel, Team captain of ForeverJewell. So much has changed this year. I am in a new place. I moved from phoenix to North Carolina. Even though so much has changed the fight to cure cancer is still the same. This is my 7th year walking and team ForeverJewell's 4th year. Every year we raise money and walk in honor of our brother Bob Jewell that died of lymphoma on March 2nd 2005. This year was the 5 year anniversary of his passing.Bob was the one who first heard of the Light the Night walk, and wanted to go so that's just what we did. Bob was stronger then anyone I had ever known. He never gave up and was such a loving person. He would do anything for just about anyone. That's just the kind of man he was. We lost Bob on March 2nd of 2005. Life has never been the same after that. Losing Bob made me realize how short life can be. Every year my team and I raise money in hopes that one day no other family will have to go though all the pain we went through when we lost him. The first walk alone was the hardest thing I had to go through. Having the memory of Bob being there just the year before holding his white survivor balloon just made me cry. Then I looked around, and saw so many people with white balloons fighting strong and those with red balloons showing there support. I was proud that I was there still showing my support for Bob and letting him know that even though he is gone, I will always continue this fight for him. Along the way my family, I created our team "Forever Jewell" consisting of Myself, Joey Spinelli, Tim Troxel, Lexx Jewell Carabello and Josie Scoma. Together as a family we are fighting back against cancer. Every little donation will help. The biggest gift you can give someone is the gift of life. Please help us and make this year be a great one.


* A donation of $25 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.

* A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.

* A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.

* A donation of $1,000 makes possible one- on-one conversations with health care specialists who provide patients with information about their disease, treatment options, and helps prepare them with questions for their health care team.


Thank you to everyone who has supported is in the past. Our fight is even stronger this year as we all reflect on the loved one we lost and the loved ones who are still fighting for their lives. Everyone knows someone who's lives has been touched by cancer. Please help us make a difference.





HIS LIGHT

The sun comes up but clouds hide the light

No sun is shinning through the windows

No sun is shinning through the doors

The candle in his room,

All the light that was left burned out today

Tomorrow the rain will still fall

As all our tears can fill the sky

But life keeps moving just the same

The world keeps going and will never know his name

A piece of me is lost today

A piece forever gone with his name

I hold him in my head, I hold him in my heart

The life we lost is tearing me apart,

But I will find a way to pass the day

For him I will find a way to make his light stay

So there goes another day

But I will never forget his eyes or his smile

I will never forget feeling this way
