WELCOME AND THANK YOU FOR JOINING TEAM OH MY GODFREY!!!!!!!!
Welcome to the team page for Team Oh My Godfrey! I'm Linsey Godfrey the team captain and one of the celebrity ambassadors for this year's Light The Night event. While visiting this page you can read a little bit more about me and my personal story for getting involved with the Leukemia Lymphoma Society and you can also choose to join the team, make a charitable donation and register for the walk! I certainly hope and encourage you to do all of it!!
As I said before, I'm Linsey Godfrey, seven years ago I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma stage 3A. It was pretty devastating news. Up until then I had never even heard of Lymphoma and I had no clue what it was. I had never even known anyone who had any type of cancer. The first thing my doctor handed after diagnosising me was a Leukemia Lymphoma Society packet that explained exactly what Hodgkin's Lymphoma was and what I could expect for my course of treament. I underwent six months of chemotherapy that stretched out over seven due to some complications. But after the seven months were, up I can happily say now, seven years later I am officially CURED of cancer!!
One of the most interesting things my doctor said to me that really made me want to get involved with this organization was that if I was diagnosed 20 years ago it would have been a death sentence. That blew my mind! That in a matter of 20 years, in my life time, we went from my diagnosis being a death sentence to six months of chemotherapy! And it is because of funding for research from organizations like Leukemia Lymphoma Society. That is why I work with them, that is why I donate and that is why I walk. To help eradicate this disease all together and to say "FUCK YOU" to cancer!!!!
This cancer is a young persons cancer striking young people averagely from 15-35. Not to mention Leukemia which is primarily a children's cancer. No little person should ever lose their battle to cancer. Scratch that. No little person should ever have to fight cancer to begin with. Help me fight this awful disease! Please join the team and donate and lets all say FUCK YOU CANCER!!!!
Thank you so much!! Scroll down to see some photos of my fight and victory over cancer and of last years LLS Light The Night Walk!
With laughter and love,
Champion for change ;) (I had to be a smartass somewhere)
Thank you again!!
