In 1973, I lost my mother, Jane Frost to breast cancer. She was 51. It was a devastating and life changing event for me. Fast forward to 2000 when my mother-in-law, Mary Alice Hausbeck contracted breast cancer and five years later, succumbed to this disease as well. I loved both these ladies who did so very much for me and all their kids whom they lovingly and with great sacrifice raised. We run/walk this race to remember them and honor the special place they hold in our hearts. We also run to help raise money to beat this disease so other moms like Mary Alice and Jane will live to witness the joy of their children and grandchildren for many years to come.
