EVENT DATE: Oct 19, 2014

THE STORY:

My mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer in July 2013 at the young age of 58. She spent the Fall of 2013 battling with her heart and soul to beat it and on January 7, 2014 we received the phenomenal news that she had overcome the odds and was cancer free. We celebrated like crazy...

In June 2014 we received the devastating news that it had returned, the small tumor was removed and chemo was scheduled to begin in September. By last month, the cancer had returned and spread to her lungs. My mom continues to battle every day against this awful disease. It is called the silent killer because the symptoms often go undetected.

Last Spring I decided to run my first FULL marathon in Cleveland in celebration of my mother’s life. I took the course surrounded by 20 other women in teal tutus to raise awareness for Ovarian Cancer and we proudly raised over $7,000! Today, I sit here and helplessly watch my mom continue to fight, there is not much I can do to comfort her, to take away her pain or lessen her suffering, but I can continue to raise awareness and funds for research to hopefully find a cure. So this Sunday, I’ve decided (pretty much at the last minute and without much training) to run the Columbus Half Marathon. I will be the only teal tutu, the only shirt with a teal ribbon, but I hope to spark up some conversations along the course, raise awareness, and gather some donations along the way. If you are so inclined to make a donation in my mom’s honor, I would be so very appreciative…

Many thanks and much love!
Laura
