One moment is all it takes for your life to change. For those of us who have been diagnosed with cancer of any type, we have it burned in our memory the exact second life as we knew it - as we loved it, was no more. For me, it was September 8, 2016 when I went for a biopsy on the lump I had found, and the radiologist told me to “prepare myself”. For those of you that follow Infinite Strength, for those that support us and the work we do, you know my story and how it evolved. But what you may not know is that it has been two and a half years since my diagnosis and I still struggle. Once you end treatment your cancer journey is not “over”, and things don’t get back to “normal”, and I really get aggravated when people make those comments (even tho it is innocent and meant to be helpful).
On Friday, March 8th, Infinite Strength officially joined the Big Y family in their Partners of Hope Campaign. Each year BIG Y has a capital campaign that generates funds from customers and employees of their 70 plus stores throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts. Infinite Strength is honored to be a long-term partner with a brand that is synonymous with family and community!
Families and friends gathered on October 13th to have some old fashioned fun at Infinite Strength’s Hoedown. The sun came out just in time for our celebration, and it is safe to say that everyone enjoyed the amazing music provided by Midnight Rodeo, and the tasty BBQ provided by Pig Rig. Our sincere thanks to all that joined us and donated to Infinite Strength. We raised funds and awareness for the patients of the Smilow Breast Center.
An Evening in Pink 2018 was a huge success! We gathered at Pine Orchard Yacht and Country Club and raised $50,000.00 for the patients of the Smilow Breast Center at Smilow Cancer Hospital, Yale New Haven. Thank you to all those that supported our inaugural event!
