THE STORY:

"LIVE LONG & PROSPER!"

One cannot imagine the impact 3 words can have on a individual, "you have cancer," and the challenges that loved ones, friends and all on their support team will encounter. Fortunately we live in time where advancements are being made every day in cancer treatments, patient care, and more.

The odds of getting cancer are greater than winning a few chips or breaking even while playing roulette.

Since I started to get into running for charities I had thought that one day I would run a marathon in honor of my Grandmother Olga who died of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma for which the odds for a woman are 1 in 52. Since her passing several family members, friends and colleagues have had their battles with one form of cancer or another; brain, breast, colon, liver, lung, thyroid. It is for them that I dedicate my 2013, 27.2 mile trek during Marine Corps Marathon this October. Especially my Uncle Jose Eduardo and dear friend Barbara who are both currently battling their respective cancers full force; with great courage, spiritual strength and humility. They are champions. They are inspiratons to those who surround them!

(Less than 1 month to go- Let the fund raising begin!)

There are many wonderful charities out there to support. I wish I could help them all, but selected one that would support research for various forms of cancer and appreciate with full heart what ever support you can lend, so more children, men and women can...
