  • Help! Need your writing skills!

    I will be on the field at our LiveStrong event on Sunday and they have asked for a couple of sentences that they can read about me and LiveStrong over the speakers while they give me a game ball.

    I need to submit in a couple of hours, so here's my draft. Get your red pens ready and don't spare my feelings. This is about getting people to ACT!

    How about:

    Boyce Hudson was diagnosed with cancer in July of 2006. He and his family have taken an active role with the Lance Armstrong Foundation, an organization that has helped them and thousands of others accept the diagnosis, cope with the treatment, continue the fight, and enjoy the survival. 100% of every dollar you give today will go to support research, community and survivorship programs. Special thanks to the Bulls for their incredible support and to all of you for your generosity. Live Strong!
    Stage III Non-Seminoma- 7/11/06
    Right I/O 7/12/06
    Completed 4x BEP 11/06
    Bi-Lateral RPLND (Dr. Shenifeld)- 11/27/06
    Surveillance since then

    When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or Fight Like Hell.
    Lance Armstrong.
