“My goal is to motivate and inspire those who live with cancer to take any step towards movement and exercise”
My relationship with cancer started over 15 years ago, when my mother was first diagnosed. Since then, she has fought and won the battle with four different types of this disease. Her strength and her will and her courage was not only inspirational but it was one of the reasons she could fight so hard.
Since then, I have had many friends and loved ones affected and have watched the struggle first hand. When meeting Yariv, it all came to light the importance of our physical strength’s connection to mental strength, and the importance of keeping the two very much alive, and in harmony through it all.
I paddle at his side in the NYC SEA Paddle in a pledge to help motivate and cultivate a new culture of health. My goal is to motivate and inspire those who live with cancer to take any step towards movement and exercise — whatever level that may be — one step at a time, and to help them recognize and feel its amazing benefits. Thank you for supporting my paddle and this incredible cause!
