PUTNAM DENTAL BATTLES CANCER OUR RELAY FOR LIFE TEAM: “THE TOOTH FAIRIES”

When I was in my early 20s, I was diagnosed with a precancerous condition that nearly caused me to have a hysterectomy, preventing me from ever having children. At such a young age, this was a tough pill to swallow. Thankfully, my doctors were able to treat my condition, and I now have three beautiful boys.

Sitting next to him is my grandmother, Lidia, who survived thyroid and colon cancer, but decades later, passed away from colostomy complications. I am racing for my grandparents, but I am also racing for anyone who has ever been affected by cancer. I would love for you to support us.”

I am not the first person in my family to have faced a cancer diagnosis. My father passed away from prostate cancer, which is one of the most preventable forms of cancer. My aunt passed away from lung cancer, my maternal grandfather died from colon cancer, and my paternal grandfather died from melanoma. My stepfather is currently being treated for bladder cancer, and my brother-in-law was treated for leukemia as a child. The drugs used in his treatment have continued to be the root of many of his health problems today. Cancer has ravaged my family, and I am taking a personal stance against it. On June 10, the team at Putnam Dental Associates will be joining together to participate in the inaugural Brewster Relay For Life will take place from 6 p.m. to midnight. Our team will be called “The Tooth Fairies,” and we would love for you to support us. Dr. Ferranti will also be racing with The Tooth Fairies. Here’s why: “Relay For Life is a celebration of life, both past and present. It represents all of our peers and family members who have fought against cancer. I have lost my grandmother and grandfather to cancer, and I am currently supporting friends and colleagues who are battling for their lives. Cancer does not discriminate against the old or the young, and together we must continue this fight. “The photo in this article was taken during my White Coat

our team, please feel free to call Sandy at the office at 1-855- 347-7476 or email pdamarketing@comcast.net . We will also be organizing a fundraising event on May 11. Every member of our team will be participating for a different reason. Some are cancer survivors, some are caretakers, and all have been impacted in one way or another by this disease. With every penny received, we are not only one step closer to ending this horrible disease, but we are also showing those currently undergoing treatment that they are not alone.
