One of the best parts of my job in marketing and communications is getting to meet — and if I am lucky, befriend — new people all the time. That’s also been the greatest joy in my volunteer work with Gilda’s Club and my participation in Gilda’s Gang.
Today, I get to introduce you to one of those people, Gilda’s Club member and fellow Gang teammate Ezra Fitz. I call him a teammate because we have worn the same t-shirt during Country Music Marathons, but trust me, we are not in the same league. Ezra is a runner and he is home watching a ball game on TV by the time I cross the finish line. I’m just saying.
But I’ll make this introduction short so you can get to the good stuff. Ezra’s is the featured “Story of Survival” in the current issue of Momentum, the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center’s magazine. This first-person account is often my favorite part of the magazine and Ezra’s story is no exception. He is a wonderful writer, with a powerful story.
So let’s get to it. Drum roll, please.
Thanks, Ezra, for sharing your experience with all of us.
