I'm very sad to inform everyone that my Aunt Mona succumbed to cancer the morning of January 10. She passed away peacefully in her home with her daughter, Michelle, and her sister, Anna (my Mom), at her side. Aunt Mona fought valiantly for seven months but both the disease and the chemotherapy treatments proved to be too much. She was very much at peace through her last weeks of life. Being a woman of strong faith, she exhibited no fear and believed it was her time.

Aunt Mona taught me kindness and generosity throughout my life. Most of all, through these past seven months, I learned that we should never hold back what we want to say or do for our loved ones. When I showed Aunt Mona all the support she received from you through my fundraiser, she was genuinely touched and would have thanked each and every one of you if possible. I implore you to continue supporting the research to eradicate this disease forever. No one deserves to have cancer.

Thank you again.

Hello everyone! I wanted to…
Hello everyone! I wanted to express my gratitude for all of you who took the time to read my story and contribute to such a great cause. After more time researching this disease, I've learned that cancer has somehow impacted all our lives in some way, shape or form. Either we lost someone who had cancer, or we knew someone close to us who lost someone. I wish for that day where we are confident that having cancer is not an automatic death sentence. Thank you again for the support!

On a brighter note, an update on Aunt Mona's condition and my training. She has had 3 rounds of chemo so far and each round has given her quite an ordeal. Each time it affects her differently, sometimes she's really fatigued, sometimes she's nauseous, sometimes she's dizzy, etc. On the positive side though, she had a CT scan this week and the oncologist said that the tumors on her liver and surrounding cancer masses have shrunk! That is the best news that we could hear! However, we are all still conscious of the reality of late stage cancer, but to know that her body has reacted positively to the chemo gives us the hope of that sought after miracle. This news also gives Aunt Mona more fight as she went to receive her 4th round of chemo later that day.

As for my training, it's been challenging. Today's 20 mile run was not only painful but boring...but just the thought of my Aunt Mona's quirky smile got me through just fine. I've been battling injuries from this block of training as well but I think I'll be able to hold them off for October 7.

Thank you again for the support! It means more to me than you know.
