MY FIRST MARATHON!! I could not be more excited about running the NY Marathon fundraising for CT Challenge! 25 years ago as I watched my sister run NY for the first time, I said that my dream is to run a marathon with her. It took 25 years, 3 children, a cancer diagnosis, a broken ankle and a fierce desire to never give up to make this happen! When I was diagnosed with cancer of the appendix almost 5 years ago, I thought my chances of making my marathon aspirations come true were definitely out of the picture. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to have CT Challenge support me through my treatments and recovery. CT Challenge helped me begin a new chapter of my life of health and happiness! And I am happy to say my sister will be running by my side!
Join me in supporting the CT Challenge and help provide important resources for cancer survivors. I am training to run the TCS NYC Marathon on November 2. Proceeds from my race will fund unique programs and research to help cancer survivors through exercise, nutrition and psychosocial support (all of which I have personally benefitted from) Cancer survivors need follow-up care for life and I am helping them. I hope you will support my efforts by making a secure online donation here or printing out a donor form and sending it in with a check. All cancer survivors will benefit.
