Welcome to My Personal Page
I am participating in the 2017 Get Your Rear In Gear 5K Run/Walk, an event to benefit the Colon Cancer Coalition, on Sunday May 14th. This cause is close to my heart as it has personally affected my family. My mother was diagnosed with colon cancer in December of 2013 after experiencing unbearable pain in her stomach. She underwent surgery to remove the tumor in her large intestine followed by 7 months of chemotherapy.
While she is doing better every day, I do not forget her journey. One of the most difficult things in life is to watch someone you love suffer, knowing that you cannot take that person's pain upon yourself. All we can do is support those whom we love.
Inspired by her journey, I will be participating in the 5k run on behalf of my Mom and all others impacted by colon cancer. I participated in the walk last year, and over 20k was raised for colon cancer efforts. I received the award for Top Individual Fundraiser in 2016, having raised over $900. I am hoping to surpass that this year by raising over $1,000.
This also falls on Mother's Day, which will make this day extra special.
Please check out the organization's website and consider a donation if you are able. I know that money is tight for many, so know that if you decide to donate, 100% goes directly to the Coalition to support colon cancer efforts. It is a great cause and each dollar is truly appreciated. Thank you so much for your consideration.
All My Best,
