THE STORY:

Recently, I was told I have Malignant Melanoma.  

Again.  

Almost exactly 3 years to the day since my original diagnosis.  

So, I'm getting off my duff and dedicating my Hood to Coast run to raising money for the Ulman Cancer Fund.  Why?  Well, I (still!) fall into the Young Adult category when it comes to cancer.  In the world of cancer, Young Adults are widely negelected.  Statistics I'm given have me compared to the 60+ crowd.  Resources for empowerment, guiding us through the 'system,' and even having someone counsel us through what to if you want to have kids down the road - largely non-existent.

And so I raise.  Money.  Awareness.  My spirits.

Update 6/1:

I'M CANCER-FREE.  At least for this round.  I just got the news today, so I'm kicking off my fundraising appeal in my typical "Go Big" fashion.  Join me.

I also just found out that if I raise $750+, then I get access to the VIP tents with massage, sleeping cots, clean porta-potties, etc.  Help a sister out!

Update 5/9:  

We chose who is running what legs for the relay today.  I had a moment of "oh, wow" when Becker acknowledged that we can give me an easier one down the road.  If we need to.  If this turns out to be more than 'just' surgery.

Surgery is May 23rd & lymph node biopsy being tackled at the same time.

*sigh*

**********************

What is Hood to Coast?  It's an eclectic group of adventurers are coming together to run the longest relay race in America, the Hood to Coast relay. Starting at Mount Hood we'll take turns footing it across 197 miles of the beauty of Oregon until we get to the beach. Literally. I'll be footin' it through gorgeous Oregon with a mixed bag of 13 folks...and I can't wait.
