THE STORY:

I would like to begin by thanking everyone for all their support last year as I raised money for the TargetCancer Foundation and trained for the Boston Marathon.  Last year, Nicole and I joined forces and ran for team TCF.  This year, I am lucky enough to not only represent TCF with Nicole again, but my sister will be joining us as well!  The TargetCancer Foundation is close to my heart.  I am honored and excited to be lucky enough to represent TCF in their second Boston Marathon once again. 

As we all know, cancer affects everyone in life, whether it is close to home or not.  For me, it hit very close to home.  Please take the time to read and share my story as to why representing TCF is so special to me.

My story begins and ends with family.  I am one of four children.  I have an older sister, a younger sister, and a younger brother.  My mother and father gave us an amazing childhood, filled with memories and adventures.  We enjoyed family vacations, like our annual trips to cape cod or camping.  I was even lucky enough to have my father coach my Middleton Youth Soccer team growing up.  Then one day our lives changed.  My father and mother sat us down to break the news that my father had been diagnosed with cancer.  The fight was a hard one for him.  About a year later when I was 11, I arrived home from school to be told that my father lost his battle with cancer.  He was a young 38 year-old man.  I still remember that day so vividly.  My mother, my siblings, and I could not be more grateful for the family and friends we have had over the years to help support us in all sorts of ways, big and small.  

When my father was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma, the same rare cancer as Paul Poth, founder of Target Cancer, was diagnosed with, there was no treatment or cure, and there still is not.   TargetCancer Foundation raises awareness and does the research needed for rare cancers such as cholangiocarcinoma.  The hope is that someday TCF will be able to find some hope for those diagnosed with rare cancers.  My goal for fundraising is $7,500 although I think it would be amazing to exceed this!  I run this Boston Marathon in memory of my father.  I know he will be with me through the months of difficult training, as well as every step I take toward the finish line on April 18, 2016.
