THE STORY:

Brooke Foster was diagnosed in Feb. 2014 with Osteosarcoma (Stage 4). In March 2014, she celebrated her 16th birthday while undergoing Chemo treatments. In June, Brooke had surgery to remove a large portion of her femur to remove the cancer and had a bone replacement. With insurance already maxed out, they recently discovered that the chemo has only been 5% effective. Brooke has been invited into several research studies around the world and they are currently exploring & testing to determine the best alternative treatment possible for her. Needless to say, since these are "studies", they are not FDA approved yet and all expenses will be out of poket. Brooke and her Dad need your help for her outrageous medical expenses. Anything you can donate will help. To this end, I, Terry Eppler, am running the Ft. Worth Marathon on November 9, 2014. The race is 26.2 miles and there are many rational reasons why I should not be doing this: e.g., I have NOT trained for this race at all until maybe tommorrow morning (August 12); I have bad asthma; I like to drink beer, I have been eating poorly, etc. (just to name a few).

Thankfully, I'm not a rational person and sane is an adjective rarely used to describe me (many who know me will agree). But you can be rational and sane by doing something good to help this girl/family and/or entertain yourself by pledging to make a contribution for each mile that I manage to finish in this race... or entertaining yourself by betting against me finishing this race as the odds are over-whelmingly on your side. Now, I don't expect to win but I do plan on finishing (even if I have to crawl)...or I will die trying.

It will be entertaining as my progress for each mile (or my demise) will be posted in real-time on Facebook throughout the race as I run the morning of November 9th. Rest assured! Even if I do not finish, 100% of your donations will still go to Brooke's medical expenses.
