THE STORY:

Diagnosed with Stage IV Breast cancer in her 30s, Tobi fought a courageous battle until the end.  An inspiration to all - she lived every moment to the fullest - volunteering at her boys' schools, traveling with family & friends, spending summers on Martha's Vineyard, watching her kids sporting events... Tobi knew she was lucky despite her disease.  She knew she had suppot from her family and friends.  She knew she could afford to get help at home so she could spend time with Tom and her boys. She yearned to make memories with them so they would have memories of her to carry them through their life moments.  

Forward4Tobi works with breast cancer patients who don't have the financial means to enjoy life's moments while fighting this insideous disease. Funds raised go directly to patients so they can hire childcare, get rides to treatment, afford expensive medication, pay co-pays, and more.  

Training for this marathon has given me the chance to do a lot of thinking.  Through every painful step of the way I think about Tobi's strength and perseverance.  She fought and fought for one more day, every single day.  If my steps along the marathon route can help patients fight for one more day by making their "everyday" just a little bit easier, than the blisters on my feet and pains in my legs are worth it!
