What brought me here? I am an (almost) 37 year old mother of 4 amazing children. I have loved watching them grow and strive to be the best they can be and follow their dreams. It is a gift I have been given and have learned to never take for granted. They are not all completely healthy, one with Crohns and we spend a fair amount of time on the Pediatric Oncology Unit at Sacred Heart. While up there, we see families that are not as fortunate as we are. Families that struggle financially as well as emotionally. I know first hand how costly these medical bills can be, and I can't imagine the stress of these bills on top of wondering if your child is going to survive to see another year.
I sat in a chair, during one of Brightons infusions at Sacred Heart and thought about what I could do to help these families. I remembered Tom DeTar and how much he raised for the Anna Schindler Foundation one year. I decided to research more about it and before I knew it, I was one of Annas Ironmen.
My goal is to raise $6,000 for the Anna Schindler Foundation. This is double the Foundation goal for each athlete.
