BENEFITING: Cure JM Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 05, 2014
This year the Cure JM conference will be in San Jose. Both Flora and Suzanne are signed up to walk a 10K at the Rock 'n Roll Marathon. Neither of us have done this before but we are out stretching our miles (and our legs) so that we will be ready in October. This will be a big milestone for Flora as she's been struggling with all sorts of knee, hip and foot pain these past 6 months and working hard in physical therapy to overcome them. Hopefully we can keep her pain free, as she is now, and continue to build endurance. It's a challenge she is ready to take on. For Suzanne it will be a first ever "race" related walk. She's walked 6 miles recently but never in a race event. We just both want to finish in one piece!
This was a tough year, we lost 3 children due to complications from this awful disease. I need not tell you how heartbreaking and frightening that is.
As you can see from our photos, starting in 2007 and progressing from 1st illness, to remission, to 2nd flare, to today, 2014 when she is almost off meds again, it is a roller coaster ride.
We hope you will continue to support our efforts to raise much needed money for research, awareness and a cure. It is because of a small but determined number of families and friends that we have gotten this far. There is such a long way to go.
Please help in whatever way you can.
Flora, Suzanne and John
