Wow Blog Readers:
I Chased Rainbows out to Ottawa, Ontario Sept 23 for the Go Public, Control Cancer Global Leadershop Conference where I found out that getting “Chasing Rainbows” transcribed into as many Global languages possible is one of my new goals. The French Versioning is now finished. Hindi, Spanish, Arabic, Malay, Italian are the next to come. It is already in Dutch subtitles. So much more to do!
Three more Screenings in Hamilton, Ontario came next on Sept 29 at the Juravinski Cancer Centre and at the Movie Palace Theatre, hosted by Wellwood in celebration of their new Women’s Young Adult Support group! I met some wonderful new young adult cancer survivors who joined me at our presentations as quest speakers! I love that part!
Next, I flew down to Austin, Texas for the LiveStrong Young Adult Alliance Conference for Nov 11-13th. Fun! Fun! Fun! Tons more of young adult survivors, great networking opportunity with USA young adult groups and Australia. Met Drew from “BlameDrew’s Cancer”, and Adam Garone, founder of Movember and Jack Bouffard from the Stupid Cancer Show. Matthew Zachary was there, too. Lorna of Team Shan, and Pam of Ali’s Journey and Bill from Testicular Cancer Canada were the other Canadian’s there. Energy, ideas and inspiration! Great trip!
CAPO is next in May 2010. Bottom Line: Still much to do to support the young adult voice for cancer. I am so grateful I can still continue to make Sara’s dream come true! Love her, miss her, wish she was here! I will keep Chasing Rainbows until the work is done! Bye for now! Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! Pat
