My name is Lisa Horan. I live in Mattapoisett, MA with my husband, Tim, our 5 children, Eryn, Abby, Meghan, John and Christopher, and our 2 labs named Bear and Faith. I teach kindergarten and love to run. I am running the Boston marathon this year for an amazing foundation that hits home to me. The foundation is called Find The Cause for Breast Cancer. This foundation is researching the link between environment and cancer. 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and 90% do not have a genetic/family history. In 2016 I was the “1”. As my oldest was getting ready to graduate high school I was given the blindsiding news of a breast cancer diagnosis. I asked my oncologist “why me” and she didn’t really have answer. I exercised, ate healthy, nursed all 5 of my babies, etc. so the answer really points to the environment. Find the Cause is seeking out research to educate and prevent other women from being diagnosed with breast cancer. Find the Cause is truly working toward a world without cancer. If you are able to support my run for this cause, I would be most appreciative. As a cancer survivor I live my life now with a grateful heart and always want to find ways to give back. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support.
