Thanks, Geoff and Danville Weekly, for a nice story about the Wellness Community that highlighted my experiences as a cancer survivor and Wellness participant. I would like to clarify the information in the story about my breast cancer diagnosis. My breast cancer was NOT metastatic. It was a stage I, successfully treated with lumpectomy, radiation and chemo.

Also, thanks to the many people who came out to Diablo Country Club 9/20 for the annual gala to support the Wellness Community.

Finally, congratulations, Wellness Community staff and volunteers, on another successful event!
