On Saturday, November 3rd I participated in a global walk sponsored by No Stomach for Cancer to raise awareness for stomach cancer. The walk was aimed at unifying all of our shared experiences and our passion for the stomach cancer cause. And so all around the country and the world, we gathered into small walking groups to support each other, give each other comfort, and inspire others. I walked for my cousins who I've lost and for my mom who continues to fight.
I also learned of another family here in Minnesota who has HDGC. It was a somewhat calming feeling knowing that the people walking beside you shared similar experiences. You weren't alone. It was truly a special day.
