THE STORY:

I am Teri Griege. I am married to David for 26 years and we have two 
children-Kyle 24 and Kati 20. I love sports and ran my first marathon in 2002. In 2007 I began competing in triathlons. I started my journey with cancer on September 17, 2009. A colonoscopy revealed a mass, then a few short hours later a CT scan revealed metastasis to the liver. In the snap of a finger I was diagnosed with Stage IV Colorectal Cancer ( 5 year survival rate of 6%). This happened just two weeks after I had completed an Ironman event (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run). Since my diagnosis, I have worked diligently to maintain a rigorous training schedule; all while being treated for cancer. I have undergone radiation treatments, chemotherapy, multiple surgeries and presently receive maintenance chemotherapy. Continuing to train and participate in events from 5Ks to the Ironman World Championship in Kona, I am "Powered by Hope." It is my dream to see a world without cancer. Two weeks after discovering my colon cancer, each of my two sisters had colonoscopies. One had precancerous polyps and the other Stage III Colon Cancer. Shortly thereafter, two of my four nieces were found to have precancerous polyps. From that day forward I began a mission to spread awareness and inspiration about colon cancer. My family and friends are what motivate me. I pray they will never have to endure what I had to. I am determined to out swim, bike and run cancer; for me, for them, and for you. This is why I am passionate about spreading awareness, inspiring others and raising money for cancer research.
