THE STORY:

Ever since I was brought into this world, doctors have always had their hands full with me. Starting with a dislocated hip, where the doctor's said I would never walk without surgery, to my heart surgery where the doctor's said it was a 50/50 chance of the surgery being successful by eliminating the problem.
I have lived a life with doctor's telling me what I can and can't do and I have listened to them and have not followed my only real doctor who is God. God is my creator and only He knows what I can and cannot do. In faith, I can do anything.
I am running this race for several reasons. One being to prove to the doctor that said that I would never walk without surgery. Two being that I am a heart patient and I am raising money for all the other victims who have and do suffer from heart problems like I once did. And three because it has been one of my dreams to give back to the community and to help a lot of people all at once. By running this ½ marathon I can raise money to help many and I will achieve one of my life goals of running a ½ marathon and proving to myself that nothing or no one can limit me to do the things I want to accomplish in life. I am fighting back by giving back.
If each of you can take a minute to think of how you will help me to help others by donating even just $5, I would greatly appreciate it and if you are unable to that is okay too. Prayers are welcomed and appreciated! I love each and every one of you and thank you for taking the time to read this, I am grateful to have you all in my life.
