2018 was a long year for my family and I. My dad was unexpectedly diagnosed with cancer in May. He has been through so much these past 9 months and through it all, he has stayed so positive, optimistic and strong. Watching someone you love go through a journey with cancer is so hard because you want to do everything to help them, but there’s only so much you can do. This is what has motivated me to join team DeterminNation and run for the American Cancer Society in the Grandma’s Marathon this June in Duluth, Minnesota. There have been huge strides made towards screening for prevention and so many new treatments that have come out that give us so much hope. The American Cancer Society approaches cancer from all sides with research, screening tools, support for families, etc. that my family and I want to help as much as we can by fundraising for them! I’ve decided to make T-shirts and all proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society or you can donate straight on this page! My family and I thank you in advance for not only supporting my dad but for all the other family and friends that are battling cancer as well.
