Welcome to Chelsey's Personal Page
My grandma, Shirley deserved a much better life than the one that was handed to her.
Unfortunately, we were late catching the cancer and it had still metastasized to her brain. It was at that point; we knew the cancer would win. She stayed strong until the end though; man was she a fighter. It was then that I knew what true strength was. She never showed her pain around us, not one time. She would always put a smile on her face and act so happy around us grandkids.
She was a fighter and all around the most beautiful person I knew. She radiated poise and elegance. She made me feel loved beyond measure. I consider her not only one of the most influential person of my childhood, but of my entire life so far. If any of you were blessed enough to have met her, I would say thats quite a life achievement as she was absolutely beautiful inside and out.
Everyday I think of her and everything she went through. She worked so hard to give my family and I the life we enjoy today. The grief will come at random times, and will linger for days, but she never leaves my mind.
“Sometimes people leave you, halfway through the wood. Do not let it grieve you, no one leaves for good. You are not alone. No one is alone.”
My grandma lost her battle jack in January and I want to fight to beat lung cancer. WIll you help me?
Support the fight to beat lung cancer!
I am fundraising for the 11th Annual A Breath of Hope Lung Run/Walk Twin Cities because:
- Lung cancer is the deadliest cancer, claiming more lives than breast, colon and prostate cancers COMBINED;
- More than 160,000 Americans will die of lung cancer this year. Half are nonsmokers when diagnosed; and
- Lung cancer research remains dramatically underfunded.
The A Breath of Hope Lung Run/Walk Twin Cities began in 2007 after a group of lung cancer patients, their family members and their nurse experienced the lack of awareness, resources and support for this devastating disease. They realized that without action, the then 15% survival rate would not improve.
A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation was established as a 501(c)(3) in 2008 to fight lung cancer through awareness, patient and family support and innovative lung cancer research.
Please consider a donation to support my efforts to beat this unfair and misunderstood disease.
