I'm Lindsay and I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 34 years old. I vowed to do everything in my power to make sure I beat cancer so that I would be around to raise my two young sons. I've been poked, prodded, went through 15 months of chemotherapy, had a double mastectomy and a total of 4 surgeries in all. My doctors indicated that walking would increase my healing, so I started walking. Then I started running six weeks after my double mastectomy. Suddenly, running wasn't so scary once I had faced cancer. To say I was slow when I first started running would be an UNDERSTATEMENT. Having chemo in your body while running is HARD STUFF. Numerous surgeries and procedures would force me to stop running and it was like starting over each time I would start running again. However, I REFUSED to give up no matter how many times I had to start over. I am now 2 YEARS CANCER FREE and have ran numerous 5Ks, 10Ks and 2 half-marathons! I cannot wait to run 26.2 with Donna as my FIRST FULL MARATHON! I'm looking forward to this race and to raise some money for The Donna Foundation! I will be running for those who can't, like my pink sister that we lost this year, Angela Hazzard who was an advocate of early detection and such a ray of sunshine to all those came in contact with her.
