THE STORY:

 

Running for my Mama!!!

 

Hello everyone! Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I have run a number of 5ks, 10ks, half marathons and  even a marathon. This year I've decided to run for a reason. I've decided to raise money for a cause that is near and dear to my heart. Many know that my mom, Kathy Kildow, passed away from ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) April 11, 2006. Watching this horrible disease take my mom was a nightmare.  She started with just some slurred speech and then it progressed from there...quickly. Within months she was using a computer device that spoke for her, a walker, countless braces that held her legs, suction devices so she didn't choke and eventually was confined to a wheel chair. Physically unable to move and unable to speak--Literally a prisoner in her own body.  I was very pregnant with my first son and realized I was going to lose my mom very soon.  My first son, Travis, was born on March 30, 2006.  My mom fought and held on to meet her first grandson. She would motion with her hands to have the baby brought to her.  We would lay Travis across her lap and she would tickle his tiny toes.  My brother would comment that the cycle of life was crazy at those moments. We had newborn cries echoing through the house and our mother dying in the living room. But those are moments that I will treasure in my heart forever.  We need a cure for this horrible disease. We need to make sure no other family has to experience this horrific disease. Please make a donation on my page.  Every mile I run during training and race day will be dedicated in memory of my mom, every person currently battling ALS and every family that has experienced the heart breaking effects of this horrible disease.
