Passionate about helpings others, helping companies innovate, a wife to Ben, a busy momof two great kids; Sophia (14) and Andrew (11). Among other things, I am a socialmedia volunteer for the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation.
CholangioWhat? It's hard to pronounce, detect, prevent and cure!! One of my jobs is to share positive news towards the advancement of research. I connectwith survivors and their families to share their story within social media outlets. Unfortunately these stories are very few.
I am dedicating my first Chicago Marathon to my loving mom, Maria Domanico, whopassed away in 2012 after an eight month battle with Cholangiocarcinoma. I also run in honor of other survivors including our young friend Christopher Wilke (age 12) and good friend Bill Merriam, a six year survivor who passed away in 2015.
Chicago will be my second marathon—a sort of home away from home for me. I ran my first marathon my hometown of Philadelphia. Bill Merriam inspired me to run the Chicago Marathon. He ran the Chicago Marathon with his son Luke in 2006, exactly 10 years ago.
This year, I proudly run Chicago with Luke Merriam in honor of his father and for his caring support during my Mom's journey. Bill created a documentary for the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation that inspired many; a Marathoner's perspective on Cancer.
