For 18 plus years, my wife, Cini has been battling Crohn's Disease; and this last December she was diagnosed with having Colorectal Cancer. In January she started chemo treatments to fight the cancer. As she has been going through her chemo, one of the side effects has been an unpleasant taste in her mouth... a common side effect through this powerful drug.
After one of her treatments, I asked her and the nurse what type of gifts patients receive that have helped them while going through this tough time. Both the nurse and Cini stated hard Candies... and that's when it hit me. Why don't we join efforts with our Race With Reason family from all over the world by collecting hard candies and give them as care packages to patients going through chemo, and let them know we are cheering for them.
If you are interested in helping make this special gift for those going through chemo, please send bag(s) of candy to
