“Cancer affects all of us, whether you’re a daughter, mother, sister, friend, coworker, doctor, or patient.” –Jennifer Aniston
January 1993, I was diagnosed with cancer. Leukemia. Sometimes, I say my parents were diagnosed. They experienced the agony, the fear. I'm lucky. I remember the good moments. Watching "Homeward Bound," in the hospital, everyday. An older boy, tying an IV tube around my cabbage patch's neck, so I wasn't alone. There's fear in a hospital, but there's also love. You are family. You survive together. The Children's Hospital saved our lives. My life. My family's life.
On May 1, 2016, I will run the Pittsburgh Marathon for The Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation. Run for patients that might never be able to. Run for parent's that put their faith in doctors. Run for strength and hope and courage and bravery.
