When was the last time someone came to you and said ‘I need your help’? It’s a nice feeling, isn’t it? Even when it means someone close to you is in some kind of distress, it still feels good that you might be able to help a little and that your friend felt they could come to you and ask. I think that at the heart of every person, we all want to feel needed, and we all want to help.
My friend Kevin asked for help recently. He is doing a cycle in Australia called The Ride to Conquer Cancer and in the process, raising much-needed funds for the Queensland Institute of Medical Research. Kevin’s brother, Brian, passed away in 1997 from non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma after battling it for over a year. Also, his Dad recently underwent surgery to remove Lymph Node Cancer and thankfully, is on the road to recovery after starting chemotherapy.
When you read Kevin’s story, I know you will be stuck by all the positive language not usually associated with the word cancer. Even the cause, The Ride to Conquer Cancer, sounds victorious. I love that Kevin has found a way to turn a difficult time in his life into an opportunity. Many people use their own battle to reach out to others in need and still others find a way to let others reach out to them.
Kevin is 90% of the way to reaching his fundraising target. Help him the rest of the way by sponsoring him a few notes- no amount is too small and I know that even seeing the number of people backing him on this makes a huge difference.
