THE STORY:

Cancer sucks. Plain and simple. Wouldn't it be amazing if it didn't exist anymore?

Hi, I'm Jimmy. I'm an amateur (read: sarcastic) triathlete and an active duty Navy Chief Petty Officer. I'm fundraising for the American Cancer Society on the road to IRONMAN 70.3 St. George in the coming months. It has affected nearly all of us at some time or another and I'm tired of it -mcancer needs to become a thing of the past.

On April 12, 2009, my dad lost a battle to Glioblastoma Multiforme, an extremely aggressive form of brain cancer. He was only 58 years old and had plenty of life left in him.

On December 1, 2013, I lost a longtime friend Galen D. Grover Jr to non-hodgkins lymphoma, after successfully fighting it off twice. Galen was arguably one of the most unique and entertaining people I ever had the privilege to live with or call a friend. Being taken from us at just 33 years old is criminal.

About 17 years ago, I lost my Aunt Jeannie to cancer. I didn't really understand the impact cancer would have on me over time, but I knew I would miss her silly antics and awesome sense of humor.

There are countless others that have been impacted by cancer, far too many to list on one page. But these are the ones that are closest to my heart.

May 6th was my dad's birthday. It's also the same day as IRONMAN 70.3 St. George this year. Once I realized that, it became pretty clear what I had to do.

Help me support the American Cancer Society. Just some of the great things they provide is money for research, free rides to treatment, free hotel stays, free makeup classes/wig styling classes for women going through treatment, breast cancer support groups, and much more. (Thank you for educating me, Mandy!)

Donations don't pay for me to race - I've got that covered. The proceeds help others in need. I'm just the face of determination along the road to 70.3 miles. Help save a life. Help me, help them.

This is #WhyITri.
