I know it’s been a while and I promise I’ll post something after this to update you, dear reader(s), on what I’ve been up to the past month or so.
But before then I wanted to tell you about two AMAZING events coming up!
Light the Night Walk — Team Amanda vs Cancer
Who: Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
When: November 3rd 2018 | 4pm – 9pm
Where: Mercer County Park, NJ
Family, friends and co-workers gather together to celebrate, honor or remember those touched by cancer. Registration is free, but walkers are encouraged to raise funds to support the mission.
The walk is family and pet friendly. There will be vendors, food, music, and a fireworks show at the end of the night. Each participant will be given a lantern upon registering:
White Lanterns for cancer survivors (please note that these are for survivors of ANY form of cancer; not just leukemia or lymphoma)
Red Lanterns for supporters of those with cancer
Gold Lanterns for people walking in memory of someone who has lost their fight with cancer.
When I heard about it the first time, it made me immensely emotional to think about.
All proceeds raised from this run will go directly to LLS in support of funding for blood cancer research and blood cancer survivors! The LLS means so much to me and I’m so excited to be a part of this walk this year and to be able to be a part of something so much bigger than me and my journey.

Amanda vs Cancer Fun Run hosted by Semper Fit Me, LLC!
Who: Semper Fit Me — MY DAD 🙂
When: November 10th 2018 | 9am – 1pm
Where: East Brunswick Community Arts Center
My dad, Coach Vince, worked with friends and colleagues of East Brunswick Township to put together a “Fun Run” fundraiser for me. The run includes fun exercises throughout the run itself and will have vendors with tables there as well.
Tickets are $30/ person and we encourage that you bring your receipt to the run so we can keep track of who shows up. All proceeds (with the exception of the EventBrite Fees) will go directly to me for medical, COBRA, and additional expenses.

Next month is going to be CRAZY with all of these events. Plus November also holds my dad’s birthday, the Marine Corps birthday (dad’s “other” birthday), Veteran’s day (another day for dad lol), and my 27th birthday (which just happens to fall on Thanksgiving this year)!
I’m very excited for all of this and I look forward to (hopefully) seeing you there! Of course, if you cannot make it, I completely understand and I ask that you consider donating directly to my GoFundMe page.
Again, I know it has been SO LONG since my last post… I’ve been coming up with post ideas but it’s been difficult for me to focus and write lately. I promise that I’ll be writing again soon. I’m gonna force myself to buckle down and write them soon so that I can release more content so… STAY TUNED 🙂
