CYNDI HENDLEY, TEAM MARYN
This August 3rd - 4th I will be attempting to run one mile every hour for 24 consecutive hours in the Anytime Fitness 24 in 24 Challenge.
Kids shouldn't have to be sick. If there is something I can do to make the struggle a little bit easier, such as donate my hair or run in this challenge, that is what I'll do. I will be running in memory of my cousin Heather who lost her battle with leukemia when we were six years old.
Maryn was born in March of 2013, looking surprisingly healthy for having been diagnosed in utero with rare congenital heart defects (Truncus Arteriosus, a VSD & an ASD). In the beginning of August 2013, Maryn was evaluated for a heart transplant, although it was determined she was not a candidate due to her 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome and her over 40 blood transfusions. On her 6-month birthday, her amazing medical team was able to successfully replace both valves and Maryn came home for the first time 218 days after she was born. Maryn is now 6 years old, she has overcome many obstacles and is currently thriving! She enjoys swimming, music, dancing, soccer, her iPad and most of all her brother.
Will you support my efforts and help me grant Maryn’s Big Wish?
