Stronger together.




Believe in yourself, because we all do. We will beat this.


Just like in athletics, you have to have confidence in your team. Your doctors, nurses, friends, and family – that’s your team now. Follow their plan and embrace it. Positive thoughts produce positive outcomes. Cancer is your opponent. Never fear it. Fear is a lack of faith. Trust in your team, yourself, the Lord and His plan.  Your test results will be your scouting report.  From this, you’ll overcome your opponent. Maintain confidence and a positive, prayerful attitude. Those around you will feed off you. You will gain more power as these positive thoughts multiply among your team. Hold your head high and meet your opponent and challenge head on. ​


Stringer, as we call him, is the inspiration behind Personal Pep Rally. On July 1st, 2016 at the age of 33 he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer and Stringer just happens to be our son in law.

Our family realized how fortunate we were to have people show up for us during cancer. As we sat in waiting rooms and cancer centers we looked around and could find those that haven’t been so lucky.
