Walking For Wixey


Recently, Q13 FOX News anchor, Bill Wixey, was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. He chose to share his diagnosis, treatment and walk with cancer with his viewers, which you can read here. Well, I am one of those viewers. I could not stand by and let something like this happen with out making a stand.


You see, Bill and Q 13 cares about their viewers. From the latest traffic, weather and breaking news to health topics and making sure we don't get scammed, Q 13 has been a member of OUR family for a long time. Well, what do you do when a "family" member tells you they have cancer?? Sure, you go through all the "emotions" first. Shock. "What?? Bill Wixey?? That really cool dude on Q13???" Disbelief. "No way! He looks so fit, healthy and young. No one with THAT amount of hair can have Hodgkins Lymphoma!!" Grief. "He has a family. His children are the same ages OUR kids are! He's too young." Finally, comes resolve. Resolve to take a stand and fight with Bill, his family, his co-workers and friends.


This is my stand. I have started a team devoted to helping Bill fight the battle and WIN! Take a stand, too. Walk with us on September 26th, 2009 at Greenlake. Tell everyone you know that the LLS is sponsoring a walk to raise funds and awareness for cancer. If you can't walk with us that night, all you have to do is make a donation to our team, who will do ALL the walking for you and for Bill. I want to turn this into one of those "Remember when...." stories. 20 years from now, I want to be able to say, "Remember when Bill Wixey had cancer and beat it?? Now, here he his on TV, STILL making sure we are keeping our Money Safe"
