THE STORY:

Hello Friends and Family,

As many of you may or may not know I was chosen to run the Chicago Marathon by Lottery.  How lucky for me.  I have decided to instead give that away to another lucky runner and run as a charity runner and help raise funds for Cal's Angels. 

Why Cal's Angels?  Well let me start with a brief history of why and how I became a runner.  

In 2008 I went for my normal routine Mammogram and unfortunately they had found several lumps known as Lymph Nodes, I needed a Biopsy to confirm the stages.  I was fortunate and the Biopsy showed that the Lymph Nodes were Benign.  Happy Ending right.

Well again in 2011 during my normal routine they again found more Lymph Nodes.  I was devasted emotionally and physically.  Another Biospy was done to confirm where I stood.  Was it malignant this time?  I cannot tell you how terrified I was, and how relieved I was to find that it was again Benign.

This was another chance yet again.  So I at that time decided I was going to do something, it started with a Walk for Breast Cancer, and than a race for cancer, and another and another.  I would run to raise awareness, help to find a cure.  

But along the way I begin to build confidenance in my running and I had a secret wish.  I wanted to run Boston.  I mean what runner doesn't? And so I hoping that I can make my wish come true in this years Marathon, and support an amazing charity along the way.  

And that's What Cal's Angels Charity does for Kids.  They make a sick child's wish come true.  

Thank you for taking the time to read my story, and I hope you can find it in your heart and donate to help raise awareness and make a childs wish come true.

Thank you in Advance.

As for me, where do I stand?  In February of this year they discovered yet again a new set of Lymph Nodes.  We will be monitoring them this time rather than another Biospy. I'm Hopeful that all will be fine yet again.
