Marathon Photos and Recap!
November 25, 2017

Hello All --  A few weeks ago I promised to supply a  full update on the marathon with photos.  I probably said I would do  this "soon",  See more
Rebecca Trent

THE STORY:

I am excited, honored, and slightly terrified (in that happy adrenaline rush kind of way) to be returning to NYC on November 5th to run my first marathon in....a very long time (I think my last one was 2004 -- long enough ago that the date is unclear).

I will be tackling the 26.2 this time around for a terrific cause -- the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC).  This is a cause that is close to my heart because I am an ovarian cancer survivor, and ovarian cancer has impacted many people close to me.  My brother in law's mom Georgia (pictured in a photo holding my son when I was going through my battle with ovarian cancer) passed away from the disease just over two years ago.  My parents lost their next door neighbor Linda to the disease, and many years ago my husband lost his grandmother.  It will be an honor and a privilege to run in memory of all three of these women.  

My ovarian cancer story is centered in NYC.  I was pregant with my first son Elio and went into the hospital thinking I was in labor (I was just over a week out from my due date).  The doctors were perplexed and thought I might be having an appendicitis; it turns out I had torqued a giant cyst on my right ovary.  I delivered Elio a couple of weeks later and found out about 4 days after his birth that I had a rare form of mucinous ovarian cancer.  Needless to say, I started motherhood with a jolt.  I was lucky to be in NYC and have an outstanding crew of doctors at MSKCC who somehow made it possible for me to be a new mother, get through surgery and chemo, and to keep one ovary and my uterus so that I could -- AND DID -- have another child, Felix.  

I also had (and have) a terrific network of family and friends who got me through this very challenging time in my life.  My husband Paul was a rock, and my mom (an oncology nurse herself) was there for me every step of the way.  We, along with so many folks in my extended family and NYC family, laughed and cried through many moments together. I remember a doctor telling me way back when that cancer would hopefully just be but a bump in my road of life; at the time I felt like I was staring down an insurmontable mountain of uncertainty and I did not really believe him.  Eight years out I am so blessed and thankful and happy to say that cancer does now feel like a bump, and one that taught me many, many things and changed the direction of my life in the most positive of ways.  

The NOCC is a terrific charity; ovarian cancer is known as a silent killer, but with knowledge about the disease we can be more aware of its symtoms and can research new ways to fight it.  Please consider donating to my team for the NYC Marathon and in turn to the team at the NOCC fighting tirelessly to prevent and cure ovarian cancer, and to improve the quality of life for survivors.
