I will be running the 2019 Boston Marathon for Find the Cause Breast Cancer Foundation. I support it’s mission to fund research to identify environmental causes of breast cancer. Over 90% of women and men diagnosed with breast cancer, have no family history. If the environmental causes can be identified, we can prevent breast cancer for future generations. As a mother of two young children, I strongly believe in the importance of understanding our environment and its impact on our health.
On Marathon Monday I will be thinking of family members and friends who have beaten cancer with amazing strength, courage and a positive attitude. I will be running with the hope that through organizations like Find the Cause we can prevent future generations from ever having to face this disease. Together we can do this!! Thank you to my family and to all of you for your support.
