2007 Relay for Life a source of strength and inspiration

It was very hard for me to see that, but it was nice to see how many people out there supported me.

Fulton had also been asked how she felt about being there for herself this year rather than as a volunteer, a supporter for her father and being there in memory of her grandparents as she had done for the past 5 or 6 years.

I think that was the point that it hit me the hardest when I was asked those things.

But Fulton did have a great time and actually made it through the whole night.

I was exhausted for a few days after, but all of the hard work and dedication really paid off this year!

Fulton has started her own Brain Tumor support group, which meets on the third Wednesday of each month at the Newman Center located at 90 Broad Street in Plattsburgh. The meetings are held from 6-7:30 p.m.

In her on-line testimonial Fulton wrote: I am a strong believer in that everything happens for a reason. I believe that my reason for this happening to me is so that I can reach out to others and help as much as I can or just listen.

This is why my mom and I have decided to start this Adult Brain Tumor Support Group: IC Hope. This is how we want to give back to the community and help as much as we possibly can, Fulton wrote.

We felt like we had nowhere to go when I was diagnosed and I dont want anyone to ever have to feel like that, because honestly, it is the worst feeling in the world.
