This weekend I participated in the annual Cancer Walk that is held by the Cancer Society of Turks and Caicos. It is an event made to honor those who have fought, are fighting or who have lost their fights with cancer.
The event had a pretty solid turnout with various corporate groups and civic clubs turning out to show their support. Companies such as Grace Bay Club, West Bay Club, Digicel, NW Hamilton and Gilley’s Enterprises turned out in numbers.
The most heartwarming part of the evening was witnessing groups who turned out to support those who were currently fighting cancer. Team Dede, Team Darnell and Team Michelle along with a few others represented proudly.
While I can’t even imagine what it’s like to have cancer or to be faced that closely with your own mortality, I have been on the other end of it. To know the diagnosis of someone you love and to face the possibility of losing them. To pray and hope and cry that they will get better. And for some, they do get better. But for others…
My heart goes out to anyone who has been touched by cancer. To team Michelle, Team Darnell, Team Deedee my heart goes out to you.
