Raised to Goal of $2,000.00
Welcome to Tim Olmstead's Page
5 years in a row! How time has flown by when measured by the Dragon Boat Festival. For my fifth year, I am back where I started year one, paddling on team O'very Good Boat. This event has become as very special to me as I hear the stories and see the difference this event makes in our communities.
Now in its 16th year, the Dragon Boat Festival is the vehicle to raise money that will benefit cancer research and survivorship programs at the Cancer Institute of Prisma Health (including Institute for Translational Oncology Research, Center for Integrative Oncology and Survivorship, and Center for Cancer Prevention & Wellness) and the South Carolina Ovarian Cancer Foundation.
My mom died from ovarian and primary peritoneal cancer 8 years ago this past April. In her five weeks between diagnosis and her death, she was in and out of Greenville Memorial Hospital three times. The programs and staff brought much needed support to her, as well as the family, during this difficult time in our lives.
Please help me honor my mom and those who have passed from cancer as well as honor and support those who are currently battling cancer and the cancer survivors by donating to the Dragon Boat Festival for local cancer research and survivorship programs.
So many of us have been touched by cancer in some way and this event provides a way for us to honor and remember loved ones that have faced or continue to face the disease. Make a gift to my Dragon Boat team and know that you are making a difference to cancer patients right here in the Upstate.
Together, let's sink cancer!
