STILL KICKIN HERO MARCH 2018
EVERY MONTH, OUR PROCEEDS SUPPORT A NEW PERSON OR ORGANIZATION WHO DEFINES WHAT IT MEANS TO BE STILL KICKIN.
We’re no strangers to cancer here at Still Kickin. You might even say we’re experts. Many of our board members -- including Nora, our founder -- have lost loved ones to cancer. Several of our previous Still Kickin Heroes were cancer patients. Some of them died from it.
Usually, when couples face a cancer diagnosis, the story concludes one of two ways:
The loved one dies from said cancer, which effing sucks.
The loved one’s cancer goes into remission, which effing rocks!
But Savannah’s story doesn’t fall into either of these categories. Because in her story, the cancer patient is her estranged husband, Luke.
Before we continue, a couple of notes. We’ve changed the names of all the people involved for safety reasons. In addition, Savannah’s story includes details of domestic abuse; please feel free to scroll down to the end of the piece if that is a difficult subject for you.
