This time, the race is not for kicks. It's for people I adore and admire who have grappled with their diagnosis, faced unimaginable fears and outcomes, and then dug in and fought like hell. My aunt MJ. My uncle/godfather Ron. My aunt Alice. My mom. Formidable, amazing people whose grace and strength just blow me away.
This race is for them and the countless others who are grappling, facing and digging in, too. Let's raise some money for the American Cancer Society and keep making progress toward better, more sophisticated treatment.
