I am so excited to run my first official marathon as part of the Imerman Angels team! This year will be full of firsts for me. This cause is really important to me because so many people in my life have been effected by cancer. Growing up my mom battled with cancer for most of my teen years into college. It was a long hard battle and for the most part it was a quiet struggle. Looking back on it now, I think she probably did feel very isolated and lonely, and I only wish that she would have had someone that she could have confided in. Someone that understood her struggle better than we could. Losing her at a young age has shaped my life in so many ways.
