On November 3rd, I will be running the Rock 'n' Roll Savannah marathon with the Colorectal Cancer Alliance charity team, and I have committed to raising a minimum of $1,200 for the cause. These funds will help to raise awareness of preventive measures; provide support for patients, caregivers, and survivors; and inspire the efforts that fund critical research—all to end colorectal cancer in our lifetime. I truly believe that the research that has been done and the progress that has been made in the fight against colorectal cancer contributed to the extra years we had with my dad, and I will forever be grateful for that time.
The marathon I am training for is a symbol of the endurance and hope that my dad showed during all of his treatments, and his battle to the end against colon cancer.
Until the very last day of his life he showed strength like I have never seen before and he is forever my hero. I hope that you'll share in this incredible adventure with me. Thank you in advance for your generosity in giving!
