THE STORY:

Many years ago a girl (Jessica) came into my friends and I lives through a good friend of ours (Justin).  This young girl was the most courageous person I have ever met.  She had a great outlook on life and was always all smiles when she was around us.  My friends and I would soon learn about her struggle.  She was battling a form of Lymphoma.  It always seemed that no matter what she was struggling with we would never know because she was in such great spirits.  In July of 2009, I received a call from Justin telling me that she had lost her courageous battle against this disease.  She was such a strong young lady and it makes me wonder why a girl so young and beautiful would have to battle this disease.  Justin struggled everyday after Jessica passed and unfortunately in April of 2012 Justin and Jess were once again reunited, when Justin unexpectedly died in a motorcycle accident.  It helps me to know that Justin's struggle was now over and that he was once again happy and with the love of his life.

This year I have decided to run the Half Marathon alongside two of my great friends.  Since I am not an avid runner and have never ran in anything like this before I was doing some research and learned about running for charity.  So this year I am running in honor of Jessica + Justin and hoping that someday the struggles that people have with blood cancers end.

I would like to thank you for stopping by my page and reading my story.  If you are unable to donate I understand but thank you for considering it.

Sincerely,

Brian
