My mother had cancer when I was only 2 years old. She had stage four hodgkin's disease. She was not suppose to live but with support of family and friends and the desire to live she made it and is now a healthy beautiful 50 year old. I always wanted to have my own charity so i could raise money for children/families who are going through the hardest time in their lives. I am not rich, so i thought of a better idea. I would run a half marathon, my birthday weekend, and raise money for children's cancer. The marathon is in Chicago, August 14th. I will be running 13.1 miles in honor of all the strong children who are battling cancer. Please help these children and support me in my fight toward the finish line!
