Support the fight

I was diagnosed with ALL when I was just 11. This past December, I celebrated my 7 year anniversary of being cancer free! As you may have guessed, having cancer at such a young age was life changing to say the least. Thankfully, through the support of my family and friends and the blessing of God, I was able to walk away from the experience with a closer sense of who I am and more importantly, who God is and how he has directed my life.
After my experience, I have felt compelled to continue the fight against cancer, although my personal battle is over. I have volunteered and raised money for several organizations, one being the American Cancer Society and more specifically Relay For Life (ACS's biggest fundraiser).
This year, I was actually elected to serve on SMU's Relay For Life Leadership Board! Each member of the Board has been asked to raise $200. As a cancer survivor, I truly believe I have the passion and ability to go beyond that and have set my goal at $1000.
I have a personal page on ACS website where donations can be made. www.acsevents.org/smurelay/dgarcia
Furthermore, if you would like to become more familiar with my personal battle, please visit www.myspace.com/ihadcancer or Relay and the American Cancer Society, visit www.cancer.org.
Thanks so much
