My Story…

We all have personal connections with cancer, and I am no different. In January 2019, my mom was diagnosed with lung cancer. She has since undergone various forms of treatment, multiple surgeries and countless scans to ensure that the cancer remains controlled. It has been a very difficult and humbling experience watching the strongest person you know need support. And anyone who knows my mom also knows that she does not easily ask for support!! She has been the epitome of strength and positivity through it all, even on the not-so-good days. My brother and I are both running in the half marathon to show our unwavering support for mom and all those who are living with and fighting cancer.
