Pink Heavenly Participant
Connor Henderson | FC Pirates
On Saturday, March 23, 2019, I will be participating in Pink Heavenly to support the Cancer Wellness program at Barton Health and I need your support!
My name is Connor Henderson, I was born and raised in South Lake Tahoe. I moved away to Monterey when I was 18 to go to school at CSU Monterey Bay. There I ran cross country for the schools team and earned a degree in Kinesiology. On October 2nd, 2018, I was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma. After finding out, I decided to move back to Tahoe to do my treatment. I am fortunate to only have to go through 6 rounds of chemo therapy. I have currently finished 5 rounds of chemo, with only 1 left to go. The Barton Foundation has helped me tremendously, and I am very pleased to help give back. They have provided me the opportunity to workout at the Center for Orthopedics and Wellness. If you know me at all, then you know I am a very active person. This opportunity has helped me build my strength and endurance back up throughout my treatment. Without their generosity, I not only would be extremely weak, I probably would have lost my mind. I have been lucky to still be able to enjoy the activities I love; mountain biking, skiing, and just being outdoors. Please help support this worthy cause!
Pink Heavenly is more than just about Pink and more than just about breast cancer. It is ALL COLORS for ALL CANCERS. Proceeds benefit the Cancer Wellness Program at Barton Health, providing patients in our community the opportunity to receive exercise training, nutrition coaching, emotional support, acupuncture, outdoor adventures and much more. These unique services can dramatically impact a patient's quality of life, but are not typically covered by insurance.
The Cancer Wellness Program exists because of generous donors, passionate volunteers and talented clinicians who are dedicated to restoring the health of their cancer patients.
Please support me in this great cause! To make a donation on my behalf and help me reach my fundraising goal, click on the "Donate Now" button to the right.
If you would like to join me in my efforts to ski/ride on March 23rd, then please register to participate. You don't have to be a skier to join me, there are many ways to participate. Those of you who don't ski can volunteer or enjoy the festivities at Pink Heavenly Headquarters at the California Base Lodge. This event is so much fun, you don't want to miss it!
Thanks for your support!
