As many of you know, my father passed away in August 2009 after a short struggle with an aggressive brain tumor. He was an incredibly loving and supportive father who was always encouraging me to pursue my interests and to seek a little adventure at the same time. I miss him every day, but I will always feel his encouragement.
It is a huge honor that I am able to run the NYC marathon this year on November 4th – not only for the excitement and anticipation of the day – but in the name of a cause that obviously holds special significance for me. The Brain Tumor Foundation not only helps raise money to fund research and promote awareness, but it also provides networks and support for patients and their families.
Thank you to you, my dear family and friends whom I truly love, for helping to make this possible!! Thank you for your support, and for your love, for I certainly wouldn’t be where I am were it not for all of you!!
Thank you for your support in this cause, and in helping to make my race possible.
I LOVE YOU!!
