As many of you know, I spent the last 9 months fighting breast cancer. I am almost done with this fight. I only have 6 more rounds of biotherapy and one final surgery. To celebrate the end, I am excited to participate in Donna's Breast Cancer Marathon Weekend and have signed up to run the half marathon. For months I did not feel well enough to exercise, but since finishing chemo at the end of February and surgery in March, I am grateful for the challenge of sucking wind and burning legs during runs. While I have had success in my journey, I have met too many women with a different prognosis. They will be fighting much longer than me and more will be diagnosed. I am excited to run this half marathon as a celebration of my victory, and to raise money for research and assistance for women in their fight.
