THE STORY:

 Hello lovely people! I am running the 2017 Chicago Marathon in October! 

Here's some background aboue me: I ran the Chicago Marathon once before in 2013 with my mother and it was an incredible experience. Unfortunately, after running the marathon, my health deteriorated leaving me with many chronic symptoms & long list of meds. Years later, I graduated nursing school, decreased many of my medications, & began my dream job. Now I'm deciding to take control of my life & health by training for the marathon once again! I now work on the pediatric hematology/oncology floor at Advocate Children's Hospital in Oak Lawn. When I first began this job, I quickly learned that health setbacks are nowhere near comparible to the children fighting for their lives everyday.  In the short time that I have worked on the wonderful 4Hope floor, have been greatly inspired by each and every patient undergoing cancer treatment. Inspired to be a better nurse, inspired to comfort them during their worst days, inspired to make the most out of their childhood & inspired raise money to finding a cure! To say that these patients are the strongest kids I've ever met is an understatement! I've seen kiddos face endless struggles, spending a large part of their childhood in the hospital, all while keeping the most positive spirits! Unfortunately, I've also seen cancer break families & hearts and take away beautiful lives. As I continue to work towards being the best nurse I can possibly can, I've decided to help raise money towards finding a cure & save these beautiful childrens' lives. It's time to “Help KIDS Be Bigger Than Cancer
The Cure It Foundation is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to finding a cure for cancer by funding clinical trials&underfunded research studies. In addition, Cure It raises awareness&money to help kids with cancer&their families succeed, defeat cancer,&live their lives to the fullest.Please consider donating to this amazing cause and help me raise my goal of $1500 so that we can someday find a cure! Any donation will help!
