BENEFITING: Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center
ORGANIZER: Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center
EVENT: The Louisiana Marathon 2014
In 2010, my Mom, Barbara Nunez, was diagnosed with triple negative Breast Cancer. She underwent a rigorous set of treaments and surgery for a period of one year.
For the past two years she has been Cancer free. Barbara has gone through her own marathon of survival with proper diagnosis and treament.
I decided to run the Lousiana Marathon(my first) and travel from California in honor of her and partner with The Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center to support the need for awareness, funds and treament to fight Cancer.
The Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center is an Official Charity Partner of the Louisiana Marathon.
All dollars raised will support early detection, survivorship, research, education and screening programs in the local area. As a member of the Mary Bird Perkins Team, I am making a commitment to the thousands of individuals battling cancer in our community.
