THIS PAST YEAR, I LOST MY UNCLE TOM WHO WE AFFECTIONATELY CALLED, "BUDDY" TO THE SILENT DISEASE, PANCREATIC CANCER. UNCLE BUDDY ALWAYS BROUGHT FUN, LAUGHTER, AND GOOD TIMES TO OUR FAMILY. IT SADDENED ME TO SEE SOMEONE SO FULL OF LIFE FADE AWAY SO QUICKLY. I WISH I HAD GOTTEN TO KNOW MORE ABOUT HIM OR TO SEE HIM ALIVE ONE LAST TIME. UNCLE BUDDY WAS A GREAT MAN.
I wanted to do something in his honor, and try to keep his story alive. I want to raise awareness for Pancreatic Cancer, and encourge people to get tested early, while also raising money for the American Cancer Society in Uncle Buddy's name. Every step I take and every mile I conquer will hopefully be to save a life.
I hope you will consider joining me to make these miles count for more than just a personal fitness goal, as I run with team DetermiNation, raising funds to create a world with less cancer and more time to spend with people like Uncle Buddy!
I hope you'll read about Uncle Buddy's story
and consider giving whatever amount is in your heart and in your budget. I hope that he is smiling down on me when I cross the finish line...this one's for you Uncle Buddy!
