I came to NYC twenty-five years ago, my sister Dionne “Super D” Williams lived in Jamaica. We were close, but with distance and life getting in the way I was only able to see her a few times over that span. I always took for granted that when she came here we would have all the time in the world. However, in October of 2012, my little sister Dionne revealed to me that she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. My heart broke, how could this be? She was in the prime of her life, not yet 40 years old. I went to Jamaica to spend some time with her in January of 2013, she passed away a mere two days later, two months after her 40th birthday, our time together was cut short. Pancreatic cancer steals time from those diagnosed, and their loved ones, and so I had been looking for a charity to support. One whose mission involves finding a cure for pancreatic cancer. My running is about time, not only my running times, my personal records, but by running with Project Purple I am also trying to buy those families what they want most, more … time.
