THE STORY:

Hello Family & Friends,

I will again be running the Chicago Marathon for Cals Angels. This year Cals has paired each runner with a child who is fighting or a survivor of Cancer.  For those of you who do not know or recognize the name Cals Angels it  is foundation that helps bring wishes to Children fighting cancer.  Although the foundation is still very young it has helped bring many smiles to over a hundered families.

This year I will be running for one special child. Meet Natalie, Natalie is 17 years old and she is a Survivor.

Natalie loves to dance, a country music lover and a Huge Chicago Blackhawks fan. 

In September of 2014 Natalie complained about a pain in her knee .  In December of 2014 she was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in her right tibia.

Osteosarcoma is a very rare type of cancerous bone tumor that usually develops in teenagers. It often occurs when a teen is growing rapidly.

Osteosarcoma is the most common bone cancer in children. Average age at diagnosis is 15. Boys and girls are just as likely to develop this tumor until the late teens, when it occurs it is more often in boys. Osteosarcoma is also common in people over age 60. 

The cause is not known. In some cases, osteosarcoma runs in families. At least one gene has been linked to an increased risk. This gene is also associated with familial retinoblastoma. This is a cancer of the eye that occurs in children.

in the bones of the:

Shin (near the knee)

Thigh (near the knee)

Upper arm (near the shoulder) 

Osteosarcoma occurs most commonly in large bones in the area of bone with the fastest growth rate. However, it can occur in any bone.

I hope you can consider making a donation for Natalie and I and this amazing organization.
