THE STORY:

Disclaimer: 100% of all funds received shall be donated to the "Breast Cancer Research Foundation" Goal: My name is Max Pryzwara and I am racing in the 2017 Atlantic City Sprint Triathalon, the race will consist of 14.25 miles of swimming, biking, and running, in that order. My goal is to raise $100 for every mile I compete. Story: In March of 2017 my mother passed away after a long fought battle with breast cancer, that became malignant and eventually progressed to Stage IV. It was at this point in my life that I fully realized what real determination, and true grit really was. For I witnessed it in its rawest form. One day I walked into my mom's office to find her crying, I was confused as to why until I saw her laptop. The keyboard was covered in her hair. As a man, and healthy one at that, I couldn't fully relate to this struggle. My mom saw her hair as a part of her beauty, that was being ripped from her, and it also served as a constant reminder as to the disease that had harbored itself inside her. Quietly she wiped off her keyboard without so much as a word and with only a stroke of her sleeve, and with tears in her eyes looked up at me and smiled. I'll never forget that smile. She knew I was shocked at what i had just saw and then proceeded to tell me everything would be fine and this was just something she would have to get used to. I tried giving her some motivational proverbs, but I could tell nothing I said really had the desired effect, other than comforting her that I was in her corner. For my mom already had all the motivation she would ever need, a family she loved, and that also loved her. She then asked me to leave the room so she could make a call for work, for some client somewhere, who needed something, a certain something from a woman who barely had the strength to give, but still was and always would be... willing to. Theme: Rather than give you my interpretation of my mom, I have chose to provide you an anecdote so that you may make your own interpretation. All of what has been stated above did indeed happen, and although it only lasted a few moments, I firmly believe these few moments gave you an intimate picture of the true nature of my mom. If moments in life were a picture, this would paint my mom perfectly. All donations are greatly appreciated!!!
