Hello Friends and Family,
As many of you may or may not know I was chosen to run the Chicago Marathon by Lottery. How lucky for me. I have decided to instead give that away to another lucky runner and run as a charity runner and help raise funds for Cal's Angels.
Why Cal's Angels? Well let me start with a brief history of why and how I became a runner.
In 2008 I went for my normal routine Mammogram and unfortunately they had found several lumps known as Lymph Nodes, I needed a Biopsy to confirm the stages. I was fortunate and the Biopsy showed that the Lymph Nodes were Benign. Happy Ending right.
Well again in 2011 during my normal routine they again found more Lymph Nodes. I was devasted emotionally and physically. Another Biospy was done to confirm where I stood. Was it malignant this time? I cannot tell you how terrified I was, and how relieved I was to find that it was again Benign.
This was another chance yet again. So I at that time decided I was going to do something, it started with a Walk for Breast Cancer, and than a race for cancer, and another and another. I would run to raise awareness, help to find a cure.
But along the way I begin to build confidenance in my running and I had a secret wish. I wanted to run Boston. I mean what runner doesn't? And so I hoping that I can make my wish come true in this years Marathon, and support an amazing charity along the way.
And that's What Cal's Angels Charity does for Kids. They make a sick child's wish come true.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story, and I hope you can find it in your heart and donate to help raise awareness and make a childs wish come true.
Thank you in Advance.
As for me, where do I stand? In February of this year they discovered yet again a new set of Lymph Nodes. We will be monitoring them this time rather than another Biospy. I'm Hopeful that all will be fine yet again.
