THE STORY:

IN 2008, MY MOM DEBORAH TAYLOR DIED FROM MULTIPLE MYELOMA CANCER. DURING HER FIGHT, I WILL NEVER FORGET ALL OF THE PEOPLE WHO GENEROUSLY STEPPED OUT AND HELPED OUR FAMILY THROUGH GROCERCIES, UTILITY BILLS, MEDICAL BILLS, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, BUYING THE MEDICATIONS THAT SHE NEEDED TO GET BETTER.  ON AVERAGE, HER MEDICATION WOULD COST ABOUT $1,000 PER WEEK. THE DOCTORS INFORMED US THAT IF SHE GOT A LITTLE BETTER, SHE MIGHT BE STRONG ENOUGH FOR A STEM CELL TRANSPLANT, WHICH WOULD GIVE HER ABOUT 5 MORE YEARS TO LIVE. THE PROBLEM WAS THE PROCEDURE COSTED $120,000. MY MOM DESPERATELY WANTED TO DO THE SURGERY, BUT HER CANCER WAS TOO ADVANCED AND WITHIN 6 MONTHS SHE PASSED AWAY.


THROUGH THIS EXPERIENCE, MY MOM AND HER BATTLE WITH MULTIPLE MYELOMA CANCER HAS HAD A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON MY LIFE. HER STRIVE TO LIVE HAS TAUGHT ME TO NOT GIVE UP EVEN WHEN LIFE SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE, TO LIVE ONE MORE DAY, WALK ONE MORE STEP, AND TO LIVE EACH MOMENT TO THE FULLEST. AS A MOTHER, WIFE, DAUGHTER, SISTER, AND FRIEND, SHE HAD A HEART FOR HELPING OTHERS AROUND HER. HER STRIVE TO LIVE HAS INSPIRED ME TO DO THE SAME. MY GOAL IS TO REACH OUT AND ASSIST OTHER MULTIPLE MYELOMA CANCER PATIENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES BY DONATING TO THE MULTIPLE MYELOMA RESEARCH FOUNDATION. IN SPRING 2015, THERE WILL BE AN AWARENESS  RUN FROM MCAS CHERRYPOINT TO SWANSBORO NC. THE RUN IS APPROXIMATELY 26.2 MILES ALL TOGETHER. I AM INVITING YOU TO SPREAD THE WORD, DONATE, OR EVEN PRAY AS WE HELP OTHERS IN THEIR BATTLE AGAINST CANCER. WITH YOUR ASSISTANCE, WE CAN HELP FIGHT THIS ILLNESS AND GIVE OTHERS THE STRIVE TO LIVE.
