On November 5th, 2017 I will be partaking in the New York City marathon. You might find yourself asking why someone would want to run 42 kilometers in the middle of winter. When I turned 30 years old, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, this was completely unexpected. My mom has always been into fitness, health and martial arts; she has continued to be a strong role model for me to strive to be like her: fit, healthy and happy.
When I found out that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, I wasn't sure what to think. The woman that I had based my entire life and beliefs on was now sick with a life threatening disease. Seeing what she has gone through has only reinvigorated my passion for fitness and health, as she has stayed a strong positive person. Even in the darkest of times my mother maintained her positive outlook.
I am asking for your help. I need your help to show that it's possible. It is possible to go through something that completely exhausts you in every sense of the word. I am dedicating this run to my mom and to the medical research that has saved her life, the same medical research that I am asking for money to help fund.
Donations of any size are welcome and anything helps. Help me save someone else’s role model.
