Time to Row for the Prouty!
Hi everyone! Many of you know that a few years ago, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a bilateral mastectomy, followed by chemo and radiation. Treatments went well and I went back to "normal" life.
This past August, we discovered that my cancer had mestastasized to my brain, spine and a few other bones, and I'm currently living with that. I am NOT looking for pity, for this current situation has brought more blessings and joy than I could ever have imagined. New friends, new experiences, opportunities to travel...and that's just the tip of the iceberg!
After my initial diagnosis, I joined CReW...Cancer Recovery through Crew. I have practiced on an ERG, and have now been in a boat a grand total of TWO times! But I'll be in that boat 3x a week now as we (our team) practice with the goal of rowing in the Prouty.
This year, I will be participating in The Prouty along with thousands of my fellow community members who will bike, walk, row, golf and more to raise money for Dartmouth Cancer Center. Together, we will go all in to end cancer.
More than one third of all people will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetimes.* It’s a universal problem that touches everyone, including the most important people in our lives. That’s why I joined The Prouty. All of the funds I raise go toward cutting-edge cancer research and crucial patient support services at the Cancer Center.

Here are two ways that you can help support patients, doctors and caregivers in the fight against cancer:
- Join me! Register for The Prouty today.
- Make a gift to my Prouty fundraiser and help me reach my goal. Click the ‘donate’ button to support my efforts in the 2023 Prouty.
All funds raised will help fund innovative researchers and clinicians who are dedicated to finding ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer. Prouty funds also provide meaningful patient and family support services that are otherwise unfunded—such as support groups, massage, art therapy programs, transportation and grocery assistance, and more.
I am so excited to be able to be a part of this team, and hope you will support my fundraising efforts. Any little bit helps, so please contribute what you can.
Thank you for your support!
Together, we are changing lives. Together, we will end cancer.
I am registered for the Prouty Row in 2021.
