THE STORY:

I'm 35 years old and cancer has already touched my life several times.

As a child, my husband Morgan, went in for a hernia operation and found out he had a rare type of cancer. He underwent surgery and chemotherapy and was given a clean bill of health several years later.

In 2008, I watched my mother-in-law Carol, pass away after a long tough battle with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a lung cancer caused by asbestos and we suspect she might have been exposed as a child on their farm.

In the fall of 2012, during what felt like the peak of our health and fitness, Morgan was again diagnosed with an unrelated but similar cancer. I was witness to his strength and determination as he underwent another surgery and three more difficult rounds of chemotherapy.

And most recently, cancer has taken a swing at me. In the spring of 2015, I had a melanoma removed from my lower leg.

Since early 2013, I've developed a keen interest in learning ways to actively fight back. Living a healthy lifestyle has become a passion of mine. I believe with all of my heart that through proper nutrition, sleep, exercise, and stress management, many cancers can be preventable. 

On November 6th, I will be running the New York City marathon as a team member of the American Institute for Cancer Research. AICR is a cancer charity that funds research on the links between diet, physical activity, and weight management in relation to cancer prevention and survivorship.
