Dear Unite for HER Community,

Today, May the 4th, holds a very special place in my heart, I wanted to take this moment to share it with those I love and hold dear, including each member of our Unite for HER community.

Today marks my 20th year of being cancer-free, and I am so grateful.

I am immensely thankful to be here, serving in my role at Unite for HER, advocating for those in need. I remember all too well, vividly recalling the days when I longed to see someone who was one year, five years, ten years, fifteen years, and twenty years post-cancer. Their stories gave me hope and strength. Now, being that voice of hope as 20 years out for the thousands we serve at Unite for HER, fills my heart in ways I can truly not put into words for I also know that is not the case for many that we serve.

I am deeply honored and grateful to lead in this role at Unite for HER, across the country, alongside our remarkable staff, board, and volunteers. Together, we are improving outcomes and assisting in managing arduous side effects and symptoms, both emotionally and physically.

I often tell my family the importance of “marking the day”, taking time to pause, reflect, and cherish our accomplishments and goals. Sometimes, we rush through life so quickly that we forget to pause, reflect, and celebrate these milestones that shape our lives.

So today, I am taking my own advice, and marking this day with all of you. I am deeply honored to lead the Unite for HER community and look forward to all we will achieve together in the years to come.

With love and gratitude,

Sue Weldon
