BENEFITING: Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute
ORGANIZER: Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute
The Karmanos Cancer Institute is a unique, urban-based integrated center of research, patient care and education, dedicated to the prevention, early detection, treatment and eventual eradication of cancer.
I chose to raise money for Karmanos because my mother is currently undergoing treatment there, and we have been immensely grateful to her wonderful doctor and nurses. My mom has completed her two rounds of chemotherapy and has begun radiation - we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel!
On Sunday, I finished the Talmer Bank Detroit Free Press Half Marathon in 1:47 - just about three minutes under my goal time :) I trained hard, and it was a wonderful experience. My parents and some close friends greeted me at the finish line. My campaign remains open for additional contributions - thank you so much for your support and generosity!
