Where do I begin... I want to raise money for a good cause and this is a good cause... Cancer sucks.
It took my sister's life. It tried to take my mom's life - twice! My mom has battled both ovarian and breast cancer. She beat them both and if you know my mom you might not be surprised... My best friend has battled breat cancer and other dear, young friends are battling cancer now... We all know someone that cancer has affected. I have had my ovaries removed because of my genetic predisposition to have ovarian cancer (BRCA1). While we find a cure for cancer, we can help make the fight better for those that have to go thru it. I was introduced to Teen Cancer America a few years ago by an old friend who is involved with the organization. TCA works with hospitals to create programs and facilities that help meet the needs of teens battling cancer. As a mom of a teen - I know how important that is.
Help us out! Any little bit counts! This is my 15th LA Marathon and I love running it. What I love more is running it for a cause! Please help me reach my goal of $1000.
