****Dear Family and Friends, I said I would run the CHICAGO MARATHON when I found a TOP charity and a good reason to run.******
... I found them...
I AM RUNNING FOR: My GRANDMA who passed away from CANCER in Mexico. I was lucky enough to spend the last few weeks with her, laughing, painting her nails, and listening.She was given the proper medicine to help her suffer less pain.
My dear FAMILY FRIEND was then diagnosed with BRAIN CANCER a few months later and now she has important procedures to go through.
My AUNT was also diagnosed with BREAST CANCER and also has to make some difficult decisions.
My DAD suffered two HEART ATTACKS and due to some wonderful doctors, had some successful surgeries and works hard to stay healthy. I am so thankful.
My COUSIN suffers with MS and receives medicine to be able to raise some some special little children I love very much.
My UNCLE and GRANDMA have had some difficult HEART SURGERIES this past year and have had to stop doing things they loved to do.
These important people in my life have all been so POSITIVE and HOPEFUL. We are very lucky to live in an area with health care.
WHY DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS????????????? They go into difficult to reach areas and give aid and care for those that need it. For someone's dad, uncle, aunt, grandma, and child. That medicine, and surgery is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. I would like others to have access no matter where they are. Please donate what you can, EVEN if it IS JUST $5!! ANYTHING helps! Thank you for your donation and aid on this journey.
