We lost my dad when I was only 12 years old to Acute Leukemia. I ran The NYC Marathon on November 2nd,2014 in his honor. Dad was a Marine so I entered the Lottery for The Marine Corp Marathon and got in. So I thought it was only appropriate to run The MArine Corp Marathon for him. However on February 4th of this year I lost my mom to Pancreatic Cancer. So now I run for both my parents. I do still run for Team N Training for LLS for my dad and now with Project Purple for Vivvy-my mom who I miss terribly. I still reach for the phone to call her. I used to speak to her several time a day and life has just not been the same without her. So please help me do this for her. She was a very hard working woman who struggled to raise my brother Andrew and I.
