Team Tony is a gift that keeps on giving. I am a five year cancer survivor. My husband Bill and I enjoy giving back to our community, because the community treated us so well during my breast cancer journey. Team Tony gives us the opportunity to fulfill a promise we made to each other, that after my treatment, we would pay it forward and help other cancer patients find confidence and hope during their cancer journey. Bill and I attended the Team Tony training program. We felt right at home, because all the incredible people in the room shared the same vision and mission. Soon after the training, I was connected with a cancer patient that will undergo the same treatment I completed. This is a gift to me to be able to inspire, encourage, and walk beside a cancer patient that is experiencing the unknown at this time. Team Tony created a gift giving program that allows survivors to give the gift of friendship to a newly diagnosed cancer patient needing support. The cancer patient receives the gift of support, knowledge & encouragement to complete their cancer journey in a positive manner. Team Tony has also taught us to be kind to ourselves. When a cancer patient comes full circle and receives the gift of good health, we need to show up in our lives to maintain that gift. TT Active-Cancer Connection offers exercise, friendship, laughter & support. Our favorite activity is walk and talk. We walk the bridge in Sarasota on Sunday mornings with team members & friends. We are also looking forward to becoming more involved with the upcoming Team Tony events. The future is what we make it, and being involved with such a positive program, we feel our lives will be full of great moments.
