Three Years Cancer Free!
Jul 31, 2017 by Scott Roby

Last night, Ashley and I celebrated my three year cancer free anniversary. We enjoyed a great dinner at Cucina Enoteca, the same restaurant we went to celebrate the evening I got the all clear on July 28, 2014. It is difficult to believe it has been three years, especally when I look back on all of the amazing things that have happened in our life together since then, primarily getting married and having Savana together. She is such a gift to us, one that we did not anticipate would happen when I received my diagnosis. In March 2014, after weeks of discomfort, unexplained pain, failed trips to the Urgent Care, and a lot of trying to gut it out, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Burkitt's Lymphoma. This rare cancer is fast growing and required nearly four months of in-hospital chemotherapy. Thanks to Dr Minh Nguyen, the incredible nursing team at Hoag Newport, my family, and the unrelenting support of all of you, I was released from the hospital in July and given the all clear. It was a humbling journey, one that I wouldn't wish on anyone. I repeated over and over, the serenity prayer: "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." As I embraced those words, I let myself ride the wild wave of cancer treatment.

While I was in the hospital, I committed to do something once I got out that would be for the greater good. I was blessed to find LLS and create the Cancer Crushers team. Thanks to the incredible support of so many family, friends, coworkers, and total strangers, we have raised over $32,000 in the last three years. I cannot thank you enough for your generosity. We are looking to make 2017 our best year yet. There are many ways to help. We would love to have you join the Cancer Crushers at the walk on September 23rd. We will be holding a fundraiser or two leading up to the walk- would love to see you there. Or, you can contribute to the team using the link on this page. No amount is too small, but I have been amazed at the good work LLS has done with the funds that are raised, so continue to be generous! Thank you for all of your support.

Welcome to My Light The Night Walk Fundraising Page

Please help me support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk by donating towards my fundraising efforts today. You can help bring us closer to living in a world without cancers!

By giving a donation today, you can help children like Molly. At just 5 years old, Molly was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). LLS was there with her and her family from the very beginning with friendship, support, through daily chemo, aches and pains, weight changes, hair loss, and hospital stays. Now, Molly is in remission.

 

Money raised from the Light The Night Walk allows The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to fund treatments for patients who are suffering from all forms of blood cancers. LLS' funding saves thousands of lives every day. Molly's life was saved because of LLS' work supported by people like you.

 

Make someday today. Please make a donation to continue to help children like Molly and check my Web site frequently to see my progress.
