THE STORY:

After 12 years of bravely and gracefully battling brain cancer, my amazing, kind, beautiful step-mom, Jane, passed away in April 2014. She was one of the most incredible people I've ever met - spunky, loyal, unique, fiery (when she wanted to be), and supportive. She handled her diagnosis with grace, and continued to battle through seven surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy, and multiple other treatments with strength, hope, and resilience. 

She had been a strong, standing force in my life since I was a toddler. For more than 25 years, she was an incredible role model, rock, and cheerleader for my biggest dreams. She's the one who convinced my dad that I belonged in NYC. She was the cool and hilarious step-mom who once gave me a thong bikini of hers. She was the animal lover, who adored all creatures and poured that love into her work. 

I admire my dad and my two younger sisters for how they helped take care of her and loved her - we all did. I'm so lucky to have had her in my life.

So, I plan to run this year's New York City Marathon in honor of one of the most important people in my life: Jane, my step-mom.

I would appreciate any help in supporting the Voices Against Brain Cancer foundation to raise funds to go towards more cancer research and treatment for those battling brain cancer. It's stories like Jane's and voices like mine - and through me yours - that will help raise awareness for this disease.
