THE STORY:

Jason Engstrom wrote -

This page was created for the Santa Barbara Marathon that I will be running on November 8th. I am asking for your pledge on this race to help Tara win her battle.

Tara has the smile that will capture every ounce of your emotion and bring instant happiness. Her zest for life is something that cannot be measured and the impact she has on every person she meets is incredible. Tara's diagnosis came just two weeks after marrying the man of her dreams (see her beautiful wedding trailer video). Tara's life as a newlywed has been filled with doctor's appointments, multiple night hospital stays and tests to figure out the best treatment plan. Through all of this Tara has remained incredibly positive and continues to have a beautiful smile on her face every day. This page is dedicated to helping Tara beat this illness, become cancer free and enjoy life with her husband.

Tara was diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Carcinoma, which is a very rare and aggressive Cervical Cancer. Due to the rapid growth of this type of cancer it has also spread to her Liver. Tara is currently undergoing chemotherapy and will begin radiation treatment shortly. Every contribution to this page goes directly to Tara and will help her win the battle against this nasty illness. Not only does your contribution help Tara fight this cancer, but it also helps bring awareness to this rare form of cancer and allows for doctors and other medical facilities to focus their research on this strain, as it is becoming more and more common. Unfortunately, right now due to the rarity of it there is not a lot of research or treatment options for it.

Please share the link to this page and donate if you can to help Tara and so many other women with their fight!
