Well as many of you know, my mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in November of 2011. That was by far the scariest day of my family's lives. We had no idea what to expect or what was coming our way. After that day, it was a long year of ups and downs, but we did it all together. Our motto was FAITH-HOPE-LOVE. Mom sure went through a lot, including, chemo, serious infections that put her in the hospital for many weeks, radiation, and then the 10-12 hour surgery that got rid of all the nasty stuff, but in the end we are very lucky to say that she is here with us today, stronger and better than before. We are one lucky family!! Pancreatic cancer is the most lethal cancer out there. Only 6% survive....scary! I consider myself the luckiest girl to still have my mom here with me today, and feeling better than ever!
I'm getting ready to run my 2nd marathon!! I'm very excited. This one will be very special to me. I am running the Marine Corps Marathon in October, but I will be running with Project Purple...Running to Beat Pancreatic Cancer!!
Thank you for your support!! xoxox
