Hello Everyone!

Each year the Nashville skating community comes together to support the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation’s efforts in changing the future of cancer by funding advanced, innovative research that treats the cancer while sparing the patient.

Y’all know how near-and-dear I hold this organization to my heart!

Not only did I work with Scott in Nashville for 2 years, I watched our skaters rally around his cause and fundraise like crazy to make a difference - the amount of money these skaters have raised is nothing short of astounding! Helping with the CARES Foundation events and Scott Hamilton & Friends Ice Show was a highlight of my time in Nashville and it brought so much joy to my heart being able to give back.

But this year is a little different for me, and much more personal...

I'm fundraising in honor of my mother, Jane Chaffee, who was diagnosed with cancer on March 3rd, 2020. Not only did she need aggressive treatment to survive, she needed a 24/7 caregiver to help her navigate the recovery and aftereffects of radiation during a worldwide pandemic. My whole world came to a screeching halt and I did what any daughter would do - I dropped everything to take care of my mom.
Many tears were shed throughout treatment and recovery, wishing it didn’t have so many awful long-lasting side effects, and constant wondering if we’d ever see that light at the end of the tunnel appear. The thought of watching a parent, loved one, or friend go through that kind of agony again is unfathomable.

We need to make a difference now for the next generation of cancer patients. Help me help Scott so we can "Turn Cancer Upside Down™!"

Please consider making a donation on behalf of whoever in your life has been affected by cancer.
