BENEFITING: Susan G. Komen Orange County
ORGANIZER: Susan G. Komen Orange County
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
I met Alicia Mendez and her wonderful family October 29, 2015, when I adopted two pomeranian puppies from her. I instantly bonded with her and she calls me mom. I love her and would do anything for her.
She was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer at 6 months pregnant. After being in the hospital for over 2 months, she gave birth to Braden, who was 3.3 pounds. Braden is now 6 years old and he is healthy and doing well. Alicia is still getting chemo and is on pain meds. I call her my Miracle Friend because after everything she has gone through and continues to go through, she is a Great Mother and a Wonderful Wife.
I an dedicating this marathon in honor of Alicia, my miracle friend and the Komen Orange County Foundation.
Thank you for your love and support.
