As some of you may know, my incredible hero of a mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. It has been scary and shocking for us all, though wonderful to see and feel the outpouring of love from friends, family and strangers rally behind her and our family. We know she will beat it!!
I was accepted into the New York City Half Marathon on March, 17th. I will be running in honor and support of my mom, and raising money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The organization has made amazing strides in generating awareness, finding treatments and providing support for women & their families impacted by the disease. Hopefully one day, due to the advancements they help drive, breast cancer will be a thing of the past.
