I will be running the 2019 Boston Marathon for Find the Cause Breast Cancer Foundation. The mission of Find the Cause is to fund scientific research on the environmental causes of breast cancer and to educate the public on prevention. Over 90% of women diagnosed with breast cancer, have no family history. As a mother of two young children, I strongly believe in the importance of understanding our environment and its impact on our health.
On Marathon Monday I will be thinking of family members and friends who have beaten cancer with amazing strength, courage and a positive attitude. I will be running with the hope that through organizations like Find the Cause we can prevent future generations from ever having to face this disease. Together we can do this!!
Thank you to my family and to all of you for your support.
