My journey with breast cancer started five years ago when I was diagnosed with bi-lateral breast cancer. I was blessed to have a strong community of people to rally around me and my family and help us through a difficult time.
There are many who are not as fortunate - and I wanted to help those women who don't have the same financial means and/or support systems. The DONNA Foundation does just that. Each year they put on The National Breast Cancer Marathon to raise funds for their ongoing programs to help under-served women going through treatment and to fund new treatment research at Mayo Clinic. I first participated in the marathon relay in 2014 and this year will be my fourth half-marathon to raise money for this great cause.
This year I'm dedicating my run to my friend Alison who is on her treatment journey. Next year - I'll have you out here with me!
Thanks to all my friends and family for their support of my mission.
