Team McAdams Sets its Goal on Surpassing $100,000!
Curt @ Andrea
Mr. Rich McAdams
Annette and our family have been so very blessed since her breast cancer diagnosis six years ago. Blessed that it was caught early, blessed that her three surgeries were successful, blessed that she didn't need chemo and radiation, blessed that her body could tolerate the hormone blockers for the full five years, blessed that she didn't have the genes that would mean it was hereditary, blessed that she is now past the five year mark where her cancer is considered in remission! Blessed that she was here to become a Grandmother three times over! Blessed that she was here to see Trey and Courtney graduate from Alabama. Blessed that she was here to see Courtney and Chase graduate from Grad school and then get married a month later. I could go on and on. I think GOD daily for his blessings and Annette is at the top of that list!
While we prepare to celebrate, the shock of that day is still fresh in our minds... May 21st, 2012: “We’ve got a problem”. In the instant Dr. Lancaster spoke those words, my wife of 26 years (at the time) and love of my life and I were reeling with a diagnosis of breast cancer.
Hopefully you now understand why I’m passionate about raising money to support breast cancer awareness, diagnostic equipment, and professional development for cancer treatment professionals. The best way I know to do that is to participate in the Liz Hurly Ribbon Run. I hope you’ll join us in supporting this wonderful cause… either by participating in the run, or by making a donation in Annette’s honor. Either way, thank you so very much!
Over the 2012-2017 Ribbon Runs, Team McAdams has won 5 top team fundraising spots, 5 largest team awards, and 5 individual fundraising awards, and, more importantly, has raised over $88,000 to support this phenomenal cause. In celebration of us being blessed in so many ways since Annette's diagnosis, we are working to push our all-time Ribbon Run Team McAdams total to $100,000 by raising over $12,000 this year and having 125 registered team members.
I hope you’ll join us in supporting this wonderful cause… either by participating in the run, or by making a donation. Whether it’s in Annette’s honor, or in honor of someone else who beat cancer, or someone who lost their fight. Either way, thank you so very much!
