Albany-- Cancer is a disease that claims so many lives in all age groups. Relay for Life is a time for cancer survivors, friends and family to come together and fight the deadly disease.
Optimistic is a word that describes Dr. David Whittle. “When you have cancer, your life turns upside down, it's totally different.”
The Albany dentist was diagnosed with colon cancer two years ago. Today, Whittle is found celebrating life at Relay for Life. “That's what the relay is, people caring, people showing they care. Trying to do what they can to raise money for research. To try to make this thing go away.”
Unfortunately, for this team captain the "thing" came back two weeks ago today. “We did a CT scan and found cancer in some lymph nodes, which means we go back on chemo.”
Back on chemo, but on a new drug called Emend. The anti-nausea pill, made by Merck, has kept Whittle free from getting sick. “Even with other chemo, I still got sick, but this time, not a bit, and that's tremendous, that's huge and enormous.”
He continues to wear the survivor shirt, because he has hope for the future. “ I have some great prayer warriors who are looking after me. All the love, that's what relay is all about. People loving each other and helping each other out.”
Dr. Whittle will kick off the first lap at seven with all the other cancer survivors. Both, Dawn and I will be out there after the show to get pictures made with walkers, and for only $2.00, you can get a picture with NBC's Friends, Ross, Rachel, everybody is here.
The WALB team joins many other walkers at Darton College to spread the news to cure cancer. You can get an autographed picture with a WALB celebrity for only $2.00. It’s a good cause, and every dollar goes back to American Cancer Society to give hope to all cancer patients.
The luminary ceremony is a memorable moment when walkers stop to remember those who have lost the battle to cancer. It's also a time to honor those who have conquered cancer. Weather pending, that starts at 9:30 at Darton College.
