Storey's Soldiers

I'm participating in the 2017 Austin Get Your Rear In Gear 5K Run/Walk!  This event is to benefit the Colon Cancer Coalition and raise funds to support those affected.  I want to make a difference for the thousands of people in my community touched by colon cancer. The funds I raise will stay right here, helping with prevention, early detection and treatment for this disease.

I fought and won my battle against colon cancer only a couple of years ago and have been in remission since August 28, 2013.  Although it was the most difficult time of my life I feel blessed that I'm still here to spend another day with the ones I love and hope to make a difference in those affected.  

On November 26th, 2012 I was diagnosed with colon cancer, I went through numerous surgeries, 5 months of chemotherapy, and 28 straight days of radiation.  I didn’t know if I’d make it through at times but here I stand.  I have an amazing support group that were deemed my “Soldiers” after the Gavin Degraw song of the same name. 

Once in a while you meet someone that is meant to be in your life and that's what my soldiers are to me, I couldn't have made it without them and now I hope now to recruit a few new ones! 

Please support my efforts to build hope and kick colon cancers ass! Whether you run, walk, or make a donation, your support is appreciated!
