I just got home from chemo treatment #4 of 2012 and before I hit the couch for an extended visit I wanted to try and get this belated status post done.
All remains status quo with treatment, etc. Side effects although challenging remain in the realm of manageable so I try not complain about them at all. I’m most bothered when nice weather presents a bike riding opportunity and when I can't pull it together for some chemo-related reason. I’m hoping that as the change in seasons really starts to kick in that I’ll be able to steal rides on occasion at the end of my work day.
Slowly but surely our Mintz’s Mentschen numbers have been increasing with regard to the number of team members and fundraising. But it’s really only been a trickle and not what we were hoping for considering our goal to try and kick things up a notch this year. I may even try to get small community interest pieces in the local newspapers as a way to help our recruitment but for those of you still reading here it would be outstanding if you could consider joining our team to walk/run (5K or 10K) or ride (multiple distances to choose from). We do train together for the biking events and will help to coach anyone that is new to cycling and/or new to group riding. Whatever type of event you choose I can guarantee that you’ll have a fantastic time and that it will be an experience to remember. The event is over the weekend of August 18-19 this year. If you aren’t able to join us please consider a tax-deductible donation. You can join us or donate by clicking here and clicking the applicable button on my webpage.
