THE STORY:

March 2015 rolled around and my current guardian angel was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Hearing pancreatic cancer makes every stomach in the room drop. But learning that my mom's cancer was caught so early, gave us all a sigh of relief. Unfortunately, after battling one of the deadliest cancers for over a year and a half, it got the best of her. Never have I ever met someone so strong and stoic while doing so. 


More onto the positive side of this story! For some time, I have had a personal goal to run a half-maraton (and fingers crossed for a marathon one day!). After hearing too many stories so similar to mine, I decided to fundraise money through Project Purple to help support pancreatic cancer research, early detection, etc. in honor of the beautiful lady on the left of this profile's picture. 


Mom's song to me was always "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts. Whether you're a country fan or not, the lyrics hit home. I am excited to start raising money for an amazing cause while making one of my dreams become a reality, and fulfilling my mom's wish for me.


Thank you to everyone for taking the time to read my story! I look forward to seeing what we can do for this organization and those affected by pancreatic cancer.
