BENEFITING: ABOVE & BEYOND CANCER

EVENT: Million Dollar Marathon

EVENT DATE: Jun 21, 2013

Joan Bauer

THE STORY:

On June 21st, a team of 160 cancer survivors and supporters will embark on a 4,000-mile run across America. One marathon at a time, the team will cross 15 states and more than 500 communities as they work to pass their baton from the Pacific to the Atlantic. I am one of those runners.

More information can be found on the run's website: http://coasttocoastforcancer.org

My name is Joan Bauer. I am a 55 year old wife, mother of three, sister and daughter. I have lived in rural Iowa my entire life. I am an LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) and work in long term care with elderly. I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else. I love my residents like family.

We all have had our own encounters with cancer. We have either had a personal battle or watched a loved one, friend, co-worker, or neighbor battle cancer. I am doing this marathon for all those who have been impacted by this disease. My sister Karen died in February 2011 after her second battle with cancer. She was my confidant and we were so much a like. I miss her everyday! My friend Clete, taught my husband and I what is important in life – faith, family, friends and fun. He died 3/20/12. He was not afraid to face his disease and death straight on.

My brother Francis started his battle with cancer in July 2010. He had a screening colonoscopy due to the urging of his daughter and was diagnosed with Stage I colon cancer. After surgery to remove the tumor and 12 inches of his bowel, he has been cancer free since.

God has blessed me with good health and a strong body. I feel that I need to give back and this is a way I can do this. I feel humbled that I am able to be a part of the Million Dollar Marathon. My hope is that with the help of my family, friends and community I can raise money that will help further research efforts, help educate others on the importance of health lifestyle choices and the importance of screening and early detection of cancer.
