THE STORY:

On April 18, 2011 my drumming group and I were at the Boston Marathon cheering runners on at the bottom of Heartbreak Hill. A lot of runners welcomed the encouragement and I had always wondered what was going on in their heads when they heard and saw us as they ran by.

Three weeks later my mom called me a told me she found a lump in her breast. Our lives instantly changed and the rocky rollercoaster ride began. It metastasized very rapidly. Sadly, we lost the battle 10 months later.

I was fortunate enough to have my close friend Sharon Borrelli help me through this journey from the very start. I would have seriously been lost without her. She had been in remission for years, but is now battling stage 4 metastatic cancer and currently being treated at BIDMC. And now, my high school friend Toni Escobar-Brown has very recently entered the battle with stage 3 breast cancer. 

I am fundraising for The Cancer Center Fund at BIDMC so that they can keep giving the best cancer treatments to my friend Sharon and other cancer patients. I'm hoping through their research they will find a breakthrough and end this disease for good!  I'll also be running the 2015 Boston Marathon in honor of my mother and grandmother whom I've lost to cancer, and for all my friends and family that have battled or currently battling this disease like my friend Toni. 

BIDMC were also one of the first responders to the marathon victims on the day that shook the world. They had saved many lives and it's time to give back.

(I also get to see what it's like running past my drumming group as they drum and hold signs for me!)

I can't express what an honor it is to be on this team! This fundraiser holds very close to my heart, and I hope you consider supporting my fundraising efforts.
