14th Annual Dragon Boat Upstate Festival - Goes Virtual

Our Angels

"Our Angels" - 10 Years - Remembering Richard!

My sister Diane began her cancer journey nearly 40 years ago, surviving melanoma.  We experienced cancer loss with the passing of our parents to colon and sarcoma cancers.  Twelve years ago, Richard's lung cancer was treated by the loving doctors and staff at Greenville Health System's Cancer Institute - now Prisma Health Cancer Institute.  Also, through these years, I have lost friends to cancer including my BFF Sandy Fehrman, and Betsy Turner.  I began my Dragon Boat participation in 2012 to remember with friends and family all of these journeys - and journeys of many others.  Specifically, I Remember Richard on this 10th year of his passing.  I wish that they were all still with me to continue this fight to conquer cancer!


Make a heart smile!

i'm certain that you have a similar story of cancer treatment journeys yourself or with family and friends. Join me in supporting cancer patients by donating to the 14th annual Dragon Boat Upstate Festival.  By making a donation in support of team "Our Angels" you help provide vital cancer research and survivorship programs to cancer patients in our community.  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 donation and know that you are making a difference to cancer patients right here in the Upstate.


"Our Angels" honors all who have been treated, and all the family, friends, technicians, nurses, doctors who got us through the impossible days.  You are one of "Our Angels"!   You make my heart smile!  Thank you!
