To give you a little background, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer seven years ago. It was aggressive stage 3 breast cancer. She fought it and beat it. A few months ago, she was diagnosed with a recurrence of breast cancer that spread to her central nervous system resulting in carcinomatous meningitis. In a matter of a month, she went from an active devoted mother, grandmother, teacher and friend to a person with an aggressive, debilitating illness. She died loved by so many after only a month. She tried to fight it again but this time she lost her battle.
My brothers and sisters (there are five of us) decided to create Team M’Evie and have already raised $12,675 via Stand Up to Cancer's website.
I hope to use our fundraising events to honor my mom while also promoting the health benefits of running.
I love you Mom...now let's start raising money to fight rare cancers!
Stay tuned for more updates on our upcoming fundraisers.
