BENEFITING: SCRIPPS HEALTH
EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2015
In August of 2014 my Mom was diagnosed with Lung Cancer, and initially her doctors doubted they would be able to operate to remove the tumor.
Taking a huge risk, on October 20th, 2014, she went through a procedure to remove half of one of her lungs.
Through the course of the operation and her recovery, the entire staff at Scripps Green Hospital gave her and my family the best care we could have hoped for.
The photo I have chosen is only 2 months after the procedure, and we were able to enjoy the holidays together.
I am raising $1,020 by running the Long Beach Marathon to commemorate the date of her surgery and to give something back to the great team at Scripps Health.
