Stuff About Me:

I'm excited to be participating in Ragnar Napa for Stupid Cancer.  I was diagnosed with leukemia in 2011. The journey to balance family, treatment and life was a challenging one. Luckily I had a great community that helped me ferry my kids, cook meals and get me back on track. I also, thankfully, had a friend who had already been treated for breast cancer. She was a god-send in helping me navigate the things only other people on our path have to deal with..."how do I tell my kids?", "how much should I worry", "I want help but hate asking for it!", "I'm sick but not dying, now what?!". Now others have a community in Stupid Cancer to help them as well with innovative programs and support groups.

Ragnar Napa in 2014 was my first running event back after chemo. To put it mildy, it sucked! I wasn't as strong as I wanted to be but was also grateful to be back out there after all I had been through. Now is my chance to get out there stronger and benefit others on my path. Thanks for donating to Ragnar Napa Stupid Cancer if you can!!
