On September 29, CCF held its first web chat with guest speaker Bill Merriam. Bill recently created a new video for the Foundation to share his perspective on cancer. Participants were able to submit questions in advance and join the web chat to hear directly from Bill.
Bill is the father of 6 and grandfather of 13. He was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma in 2009. In this inspirational video and webchat, he shares his “story” and perspective on cancer from a marathon runner’s point-of-view:
“I have cancer but I am not going to let it stop me from being an active participant in the most active way that can as a father, spouse, and as a family-head so it becomes the new normal . . . I have a disease, the disease doesn’t have me.”
