Congratulations to Chasing Rainbows!
YACC would like to do a shout out to Pat Taylor and her project Chasing Rainbows for achieving their goals!
In her August 30, 2010 blog Pat announced that she is getting to the place where I can say Sara, I have met those goals. Pat’s daughter, Sara, passed away from cancer at the age of 26 and in 2000 she asked her mom to distribute their documentary (Chasing Rainbows Young Adults Living with Cancer) throughout British Columbia, across Canada, the USA and Europe. Pat has traveled throughout Canada, the US and even visited the UK.
A quote from Pat’s blog; So, my dear daughter, Sara I know you are smiling. Other young adults living with cancer are being seen heard more than there were in 1997 when you were first diagnosed. Your dream for making young adults with cancer feel less isolated and alone is coming true! Way to go! I will continue to do what needs to be done! Love, Mom.
Pat, big congratulations from us to you. You are truly making a difference in the lives of young adult cancer survivors, Sara would be proud.
