03-15-2013 - Karen Klein Whelan's battle with cancer
It's been awhile since corresponding with you and our classmates. I wanted to let you know that after 3 1/2 years of treatment for lung cancer, I'm still here! I feel fairly good but have several side effects that are frustrating. My cancer is treatable but not curable - so I'll have ongoing weekly chemotherapy treatments.
If you feel you can ask our classmates for support for me with the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, that would be wonderful since I've benefited with my life. Hopefully I can make it around the track several times in the Relay! My goal is to pass my last years total collected of $5,175.
Anyone can make a donation made out to the AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY and send it to me at 4310 7th St. Pl. SE, Puyallup, WA 98374-5777. This helps fund all types of cancer for many people. Thankyou so very much for any help.
