THE STORY:

As many of you know, my mom and I are both cancer survivors. I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer on March 19, 2012, almost exactly one year after my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Two summers ago, my mom and I went through cancer treatment together. We took turns undergoing surgeries, radioactive iodine treatment, and radiation. A mother and daughter going through cancer treatment at the same time was the most difficult thing my family has ever faced. But with the support of family and friends and a healthy dose of humor, we made it through still smiling.

To celebrate our two year cancerversary and my 29th birthday, I'm running my first marathon! I'll be running the Portland Marathon on October 5th as a fundraiser for an amazing cancer non-profit, Imerman Angels. (UPDATE: Marathon complete! And I had so much fun, I'm running the Seattle Half Marathon in November).

Imerman Angels provides free 1-on-1 cancer support for cancer fighters, survivors, and caregivers. They connect anyone seeking cancer support with a Mentor Angel, a survivor or caregiver who is the same age, gender, and beat the same type of cancer. While I didn't know about this organization when I went through treatment, I did link up with a woman in Seattle who had just finished thyroid cancer treatment. Having someone I could talk to about what to expect eased my fears and prepared me to face cancer head on. I'm paying it forward by volunteering to be a survivor mentor. Imerman Angels ensures no one faces cancer alone.

Please consider making a donation to this incredible organization! You can learn more about Imerman Angels on their website: http://www.imermanangels.org. Thank you for all of your support!
