BENEFITING: Run For The Stripes Inc

EVENT: Run For The Stripes 5K

EVENT DATE: Nov 12, 2016

Christine Noble

THE STORY:

Hi!  I am Christine Noble, team captain and general mascot for Monster Bashers.  I earned my position by default since I am the one who started the group, and the one with the NET cancer.

Side note-- you may be wondering- as I was 1) What is NET cancer?   and 2) What's with the Zebra?  If so, read below at the *.  If not, just keep reading.

OK, enough medical stuff, back to me!!

I was diagnosed May 2016 and as I was recovering from my debulking surgery 7/11/16, I was given a flyer for the Run for the Stripes 5k.  Now, I am the type of person who believes running is best saved for life or death situations, so a 5k is not my normal go-to activity.  

But, if you think about it, this is a life or death situation. NET cancer is generally slow, but it is still there.  We need to let people know about this silent Monster; the more Bashers out there, the more hits we can deliver.

So, I am asking you to dig into your pockets and purses and give me your lunch money.  You can live without the Chinese take out once this week- I promise.  You can skip the afternoon Latte run for 2 days this week and give that money to the Bashers. 

OR Better yet-- come out and be a Basher too!   http://www.racefornet.com

We're a great group of folks, looking to run (well, really fast-walk with stops for pictures) our way through the Philadelphia Zoo in November with a bunch of other NET Zebra supporters.

* medical stuff taken from the Net Cancer Day website http://netcancerday.org/

Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) is the umbrella term for a group of unusual, often slow-growing cancers, which develop from cells in the diffuse endocrine system. They are found most commonly in the lung or gastrointestinal system, but they can also originate in other parts of the body such as the pancreas, ovary, and testes, among other sites.

Medical students are thought to assume that the simplest explanation is usually the best, i.e., it is usually correct to look for common rather than exotic causes for disease. Doctors learn to expect common conditions, hence the phrase   “If you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras.”
