EVENT: Tough Mudder Michigan 2017
Hey people; Taylor and I are raising money for a cause that is near to our hearts, The American Cancer Society. We have both lost love ones that we were close to, to the horrible disease we call cancer. Anyone who knows me knows how close of a relationship my family and I had with my aunt Marilyn. She was the authority, the counselor, the shoulder to cry on and the friend when you needed it most. In 2011 horrible news struck our family and left everyone in shock, aunt Marilyn was diagnosed with cancer. First diagnoses started as breast cancer then moved to her bones and then to her liver. For 3 years she was a warrior, beating cancer time and time again through remissions and new diagnoses, she never let cancer break her spirit. Even though the family was shaken by the news she was still the rock that the family needed, never losing hope and always holding onto her faith. On November 7, 2014 the cancer took her from this world to her heavenly home. I had the privilege almost a year later to perform an internment service as we laid her ashes to rest. It was by far one of the hardest things I've ever had to do because I miss her so much everyday but am so glad that she suffers no more. Although she is no longer with us in flesh, she continues to influence us in spirit. Watching her fight for her life, has made me want to fight for a cause, Taylor and I will be competing in The Michigan Tough Mudder this year being held on June 3rd. We are asking you for support, in any form you can offer! We are sponsored by the American Cancer Society and would love to raise as much money as possible! So let's raise some awareness and money to help these folks that are in the trenches battling this beast while we still have them here with us. Thank you in advance for your support. God bless.
