Ocean of Hope 2007
Dedicated to the Sea of People Affected by Sarcoma
Please join the Sarcoma Alliance on August 26, 2007 in celebrating the 8th annual Ocean of Hope campaign (O2H). This is a day dedicated to the sea of people affected by cancer, and specifically those with sarcoma. It's a day filled with optimism and hope. It's a day where sarcoma patients, friends, families and their caregivers meet, share stories, and bond with supporters like you. It's a day when you know that "You are Not Alone." Team O2H is a group of paddleboarders who dedicate their race in the Catalina Classic to the Sarcoma Alliance. This dedication honors those with this rare and deadly form of cancer and assists them to find the guidance, education, and support that they need. This team of courageous men and women will be individually paddling 32 miles in the Pacific Ocean, spanning six to eight hours in the waters from Catalina Island to Manhattan Beach. On that day, many courageous patients with sarcoma will devote similar hours in treatment, preparing for surgery, or resting up for another week of radiation. Every year the Ocean of Hope paddlers travel across the unpredictable seas while navigating waves and unknown treachery. They are steadfast in their determination to reach the shore. Similarly, sarcoma patients navigate the unpredictable seas of diagnosis, treatments, and uncertainty. Read more...
