THE STORY:

My Husband, My Hero.....

As most of you know, my husband Chris was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer two years ago and we are so blessed today to say that he is cancer free.  His courage and strength throughout treatment still amazes me to this day!  After undergoing radiation and then a colon resection which left him with a colostomy bag for nine months and hospitalized for 15 days, he was determined  to not let cancer get in his way of living his life the way he wanted to.  His perseverance and dedication to not only his family, his job and his triathlon training is what I think got him through chemo.  Yes, he had some bad days, but he made the most of his good days by sticking to his normal routine. He even continued to work out on his off weeks of chemo to  train for a half marathon and half ironman which he completed 6 weeks after he completed chemo resulting in his best personal time.

I could not more proud of how my husband fought his battle!  I honestly believe all things happen for a reason and I truly believe that God knew my husband could handle the battle and that the blessing behind it all was for our relationship to grow and for my husband to touch the lives of so many others.  He has begun to share his story and I hope that is something he can continue to do to not only help those fighting cancer but also those who are affected by cancer in some way shape or form.  

For several years, Chris and I have tried to get into the NYC Marathon through their lottery system and this year Chris was selected.  I am honored to say that I will be running with him that day as a part of Team Colon Cancer Challenge.  I feel blessed that I am a part of this team so that I can help raise money for colon cancer reasearch and awareness.   I will be running that day not for myself but for all of those who have been affected by colon cancer and in honor of Chris; my husband and my hero.

The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation has been working in New York City since 2003, raising awareness of colorectal cancer, funding screening programs for the uninsured, and providing much needed funds to young investigators who are committed to finding a cure for colorectal cancer.

The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation launched Team Colon Cancer Challenge in 2010 to:

  • Encourage colorectal cancer survivors to incorporate exercise into their everyday lives as a way to significantly reduce the rate of recurrence,
  • Provide a grassroots opportunity for colorectal cancer survivors and their family members to raise awareness and funds for colorectal cancer in their community,
  • Offer those who have lost a loved one to colorectal cancer a positive and effective channel for their rallying cry against colorectal cancer.

Team Colon Cancer Challenge has raised more than $350,000 in support of efforts to raise awareness of colorectal cancer and the importance of early screening, prevention, and research.
