Hello all! I hope this message finds you and your family in good health and good spirits. I write to you today because I am running the Half Marathon in the 2012 Hartford Marathon with Team Connecticut Children's on October 13.
As many of you know, Teagan battled Leukemia from 2006 through 2008 - and won! During that battle, we met so many amazing kids, like Teagan. Many of those kids did win their battle against cancer too, and some did not. I remember them, their smiles, and their stories often.
As I train for the upcoming half marathon, I don't run with an iPod - I love listening to the sounds of the world around me (and the bears, as you know) and let my mind wander. So many thoughts circle around our kids - the driving, the activities, the chores but I always get a smile when I realize how lucky I am to have those activities! I also think back to the days Teagan and I "lived" on the 8th Floor of Connecticut Children's. It seems so long ago, but the memories seem like yesterday.
Teagan will turn 11 years in one week and we are so fortunate to celebrate her birthday. As you consider supporting me and Team Connecticut Children's, please remember that every dollar you donate will help kids like Teagan reach their next birthday too.
