Upcoming Check Up

Next week I go in for yet another post cancer check up.  My Oncologist is a part or rather an extension of the Huntsman Cancer Institute. We are so grateful to have our own little cancer center in our valley now. A little side note, Mr. Huntsman used to be the mission president for the Washington D.C. North Mission but that was way before I served in the same mission.

Since November Ben (my husband's sister's husband, architect and LDS Bishop in Salt Lake City) has run over 330 miles in preparation for the Ogden Marathon this coming weekend. The purpose of this running is not just for the health benefits (he's lost over 50 lbs) but to do something to fight cancer. This is Ben's third year of running with the Huntsman Cancer Foundation as a part of the Hometown heroes. It all started after Terry Burt from Elko, NV died from  cancer. Since that first run for him Ben has added others to his reason for running. Ben is adding Laura's name to my jersey and grateful that she is on the survivor list.

Since 2003, Hometown Heroes have raised more than $900,000 from donors like you. Huntsman Cancer Foundation relies on the generosity of community members to support cancer research programs.
