THE STORY:

In the past few months, two of our family members were diagnosed with Hepatocellular Carcinoma, the most common for of primary liver cancer. Canela was diagnosed in late July 2012 and was given 6 months to live. Grandpapa Acosta was diagnosed in October 2012 and has not been given a prognosis. Canela passed away on January 5th, 2012 completing her 6 months; Grandpapa Acosta, 84, is still fighting his cancer.

In an effort to fight back against this disease, my brother Carlos and I have decided to begin running for charity. Through out this coming semester we will be completing a total of 4 marathons in 4 weeks, culminating 100 miles in the hopes of helping Grandpapa Acosta live out 100 years.
