THE STORY:

I couldn’t be more excited or honored to represent the TargetCancer Foundation in the 2016 Boston Marathon. Last April, my sister and I were lucky enough to run the 2015 Boston Marathon together, our first marathon. It was something we had dreamed of doing for years in memory of our dad and it finally became a reality. It’s hard to find the right words to do it justice but the whole experience was absolutely amazing. I’m still overwhelmed and thankful for all the support we received throughout training, fundraising and on marathon Monday.  While I was happy to support the American Liver Foundation in 2015, the only thing missing was the close connection to the foundation I was raising money for. This year, representing TargetCancer, I feel like I can complete my dream.

My father passed away from cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) in 2001, at the young age of 38. I was quite the daddy’s girl and think about him every day. He is still the most amazing man I know, caring, loving and full of life. My family and I do everything we can to carry his life in us with everything we do. I am lucky to be a part of such a close and strong family. I couldn’t be prouder of my mom and three younger siblings for what they have all accomplished.

 Bile duct cancer is a rare form of cancer that has no treatment and little research had been performed to try and change that. That’s until Target Cancer was started in 2009. The foundation is funding rare cancer research, with a focus on cholangiocarcinoma and esophageal cancer, leading to a new clinical trial for cholangiocarcinoma and other important advancements! No one should be told their diagnosis has no treatment options and TargetCancer is taking steps to stop that from happening. All donations will make an immediate impact on their rare cancer research initiatives.

Throughout this journey, I hope to spread awareness, raise money for something important to me, tackle the challenge of marathon training and make my dad proud. I am lucky to share this experience with my sister and thank everyone in advance for their kindness and support. I cannot wait to cross that finish line on Boylston Street for team TargetCancer, once again completing the Boston Marathon!
