Welcome to the "Walk with Courage" Personal Team Page.
Welcome to the "Walk with Courage" walk team. We appreciate your consideration and support. This year the team will honor all family members who have faced a cancer challenge with courage, strength and hope. In 2018, our son-in-law's father, Doss Sams, was treated at the Kaufman Cancer Center. Doss remarked a number of times about his positive experience during his treatment, the caring consideration of all the staff, and the availability of support programs for the cancer patient. A number of the Diez and Guzewich family members have been challenged with a cancer diagnosis and are presently cancer-free. We honor each of those family members, Suzanne, Jim, Nora, and Paul. We will always remember and hold dear in our hearts those family members that walked with courage; my Dad, Dave's Dad, my brothers, Doug and Rick, our nephew, Stuart.
The donations from this walk will be donated to Cancer LifeNet at the Kaufman Cancer Center in Bel Air, MD. I have been a dedicated volunteer for Chesapeake Cancer Alliance with the Upper Chesapeake Health Foundation during the past 15 years raising funds for Cancer LifeNet. The programs and services provided by Cancer LifeNet are free of charge to any cancer patient and their family in our community. I sincerely wish that as my two brothers, my nephew and many other family members had had the opportunity to be treated for their cancers and had access to the programs and services at Cancer LifeNet. Having a nurse navigator on call to you, having dietary programs, exercise programs, accupuncture, counseling sessions and a financial social worker available to assist with the medical bills associated with cancer treatment might have made the difference in their lives. Our family and I are committed to "pay it forward" for other cancer patients and their families.
May we see families in the future be spared of the heartbreak that the Diez and Guzewich families have experienced over the past approximate 38 years due to a loved one's cancer diagnosis. May we also celebrate those family members who are fortunate to be in remission. Thank you for your support and kind consideration.
