In Fall of 2015 my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer after finding a lump performing a self breast exam. As you can imagine, that is not news that any person or family member needs to hear. However, the strength and determination that I saw in her as she fought day in and day out- struggling through chemo, exhaustion, and all physical changes one's body endures - was unbelievably inspiring. On rare occasion did she complain, but instead chose to make it her mission to share her story continuously to show that there are good days, that life is sweet no matter how difficult, and that you should always, always do your self breast exams and pay attention to your body. After all, it saved her life. She has since taken up quite the interest in support groups and doing what she can for this very tight nit community. With that said, I've been fortunate enough to be chosen to run the New York City Marathon with Team Think Pink Rocks to raise money for this wonderful non-profit focused on early detection and genetic research. Cancer sucks. And if people can fight through that, then I can easily run 26.2 miles and raise money for such a great cause.
I sincerely appreciate any donations that you're willing to give to help out this charity.
Thank you all so much.
