Rebecca Powelson's Fundraiser:

New York City Marathon for Meredith's Miracles

THE STORY:

Meredith Holbert Rankin was my dear friend and housemate at Miami University. She loved life and lived it with courage, conviction and passion. She was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer at the age of 23, just three weeks before her wedding day. She fought the disease, which had already metastasized to her lungs, liver and lymph nodes, for 23 months before passing away on April 22, 2008. To say we weren't runners is a stretch. We never ran. We enjoyed romantic comedies, sunshine and anything social. I am choosing to run the New York City Marathon in her honor and to create awareness about this cruel disease and how important it is to be our own health advocate. I am now on the board of the foundation established in her honor, Meredith's Miracles Colon Cancer Foundation, and we provide financial assistance to young adults battling this vicious disease. We also educate young people on the importance of knowing your own health and seeking attention when you sense something could be wrong. We have given away over $250,000, helped 185 people/families in 42 states. Every penny truly helps and I am grateful for your consideration and support. http://merediths-miracles.org
