In this final of five installments, Democratic Party coroner candidate and cancer survivor Dave Bachmann tells about how he will emphasize cancer awareness education in his campaign.
Without making any political statements because I have never personally met Mr. Louis Bianchi, but I need to say this, please.
I watched Mr. Bianchi keep his class and dignity about himself while under political fire these past months.
I was so touched by this “reminder” of how I need to keep perspective in my own race, I sent him a note of thanks for being that “feather” in my life at the right time. We are usually touched by “feathers” as reminders to take a good look at ourselves, BEFORE, the “Hammer” hits us!
I was somehow “touched” to dedicate my campaign and share my very personal story, which I have never revealed in such depth in public.
I now know why I am still alive.
In just one short week of adding my Breast and Cervical Cancer awareness campaign to my blog, I am again, finding a Miracle of love and hope from people I have never met before, nationwide!
What a blessing this journey has been for me and continues to be. I hope I’m flooded with letters from all over the world that I can share, and hold close to my heart.
I lost my mother to breast cancer October 16, 2006.
My sister Paula Muntzenberger just had a double mastectomy, my cousin from McHenry, Mary Beth Ong, fought her fight with Breast Cancer in the past couple of years, she is in her 40’s and is doing well.
I just found out this last week, that my cousin’s wife from Wheaten, just had a mastectomy from breast cancer at age 39.
My greatest hope is that everybody reading my story, becomes a “hypochondriac” for a day, and gets tested. It just might be the day you can say saved your life!
God Bless and thank you for sharing your stories with me.
