THE STORY:

Thank you so much for looking into my page and allowing me to explain why I am running for Bright Pink again. This will be my second time running with this amazing organization. I will be fundraising for breast and ovarian cancer prevention. This is close to my heart because I am running for my mom. This Chicago Marathon is for her and for the strenght that she showed as she was fighting ovarian cancer. In the beginning of 2015, for 9 months, she went through chemo and radiation to fight ovarian cancer and for a moment, we all believed that she beat it. The cancer came back and it came back in full force. We continued to fight it but it just took over her body and she did not have the physical strength anymore. Her spirit and thirst for life was what kept her alive during the last few weeks but on 09/4/2015 she took her last breath with her family.


Running has always been my therapy and after my mom passed away, it became my escape and my way to cope. Please support me during my marathon training to raise funds for this great organization. Bright Pink is working on preventing breast and ovarian cancer, and I know if I would have known about this organization earlier, my mom might be here with us. 


THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!


Laura
