Zaxby's Kickin' Cancer Fight Club
Thank you for considering joining or making a contribution to Zaxby's Kickin' Cancer Fight Club. We walk and raise funds to benefit the Loran Smith Center for Cancer Support at Piedmont Athens Regional in honor of their newest patient, and our friend, Stephanie Gamble.
Stephanie is a foodie, a dog-lover, a faithful follower of Christ and the beloved VP of Menu Innovation for the Athens-based, Zaxby's. With over 20 years on the Zaxby's team, those of us who get to work with her know she is truly more like family.
On May 5 - just when we all thought Cinco de Mayo being on a Taco Tuesday was going to make it the best day ever - Stephanie learned the tumor in her brain is an astrocytoma and she must begin radiation and chemotherapy on May 11.
Needless to say, we're boycotting tacos and sticking with hand-breaded chicken fingerz for life.
This is not a diagnosis anyone ever hopes for, but Stephanie is backed by one hellavuh Fight Club. At it's helm is her faith in God, a dedicated and experienced cancer care team, a caring and loving family at home and an extended family in Zaxby's that is determined to show up for her in all of the ways she needs us.
Stephanie has asked us to join her in the Piedmont Athens Regional In Their Shoes Virtual 10K to benefit the Loran Smith Center for Cancer Support. 100% of the proceeds will go to programs that support mind, body, spirit healing for cancer patients in Athens.
Her oncologist has already stressed to her how important walking is going to be to her long term health. This walk will not only kick-off Stephanie's journey to wellness, but also her commitment to walking and it gives all of us the opportunity to (virtually) walk beside her in solidarity.
Thank you in advance for supporting Stephanie and this amazing cause.
