EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
I am a Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Survivor going on almost three years strong! It’s been a long road to recovery and it took over a year to rediscovered my love for running. Additionally, I recently came across my post-cancer promises list. Although I had forgotten a few, my first was to run a marathon. When I got sick, I was training for the Austin Marathon. In an odd twist of fate, it was for the Livestrong Foundation. The Thursday before the race was my first round of chemo. Another promise I made was to give back to those who helped me and those who have to endure the treatments as I did. Although this does not complete my post-cancer promises list, this gets me closer to my goal. Thank you for your donations to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Pittsburgh! Every dollar helps get us closer to defeating this disease!
