THE STORY:

I am running the 2017 NYC marathon to honor my mother and commemorate her brave & successful fight with breast cancer. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer 8 years ago and while she is now cancer free, it was a life-changing event for my family and most importantly for her. I am raising money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) to aid women globally with their relentless fight against breast cancer. The statistics speak for themselves; 1 in 8 women in the U.S will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime.

I have had the privilege to work with many women battling breast cancer in across all stages of my career in medicine. 

Be it while reviewing mammogram results with patients in primary care, diagnosing and surgically removing tumors during breast surgery, or reconstructing breasts post mastectomy, breast cancer is a debilitating disease and a woman’s fight against the disease is not an easy one.

Although medicine has made huge strides in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, there is still a long way to go. I believe in a future where a cure for breast cancer exists and my goal is to support research that can bring us in to that realm of possibility. 

Happy cancer awareness month! Along with raising money for BCRF, my goal is to also spread awareness about the early detection of breast cancer.  I have met women my age who are unaware about breast screening guidelines; what to does one do if they feel a lump, what does one do if they have breast cancer within the family, etc. I plan on creating content on this page throughout this month in the hopes to increase awareness about breast cancer among young females. My first post is titled "Why does breast cancer family history matter?" 

Please feel free to donate whatever you can to help our fight against breast cancer. 

My biggest inspiration as I train, and on race day, will be the strongest survivor I know - my mother. What I will endure in running the 26.2 miles pales in comparison to what she endured during her battle against cancer, and I will be thinking of her and celebrating her successful & challenging journey every step of the way.
