|Peter and Melissa’s Valentine’s Day Tradition|
Every February, candy, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones for Valentine’s Day. Some of our donors decide to give a gift that lasts long after the candy melts and the flowers wilt. They give a gift to cancer research − a gift that will continue to grow.
“When I first met my husband, Peter, he would give me chocolates every Valentine’s Day. I would be torn between eating them because they were a gift (and quite tasty), or doing myself a real favor, and throwing them away! After we were together for a few years, I finally told him (as gently as I could), that though I love an occasional chocolate, an entire box is just too much. Thankfully by this time, he knew how important a healthy lifestyle is to me.
Now, we give the money that went towards a box of fancy chocolates to cancer research. As time passes, we know more and more who suffer with cancer in their families, so each year we choose someone to honor with our donation. It’s a gift that we both feel good about.”
