THE STORY:

Heather:

I haven't always been an avid runner...but as some of you may know, I have been running for the last 6 months and a while back my friend and I decided to run the Long Beach Half Marathon, held October 7th. I've discovered the joy and pain of endurance running, and the positive effects it has on one's body and mind.  

I suggested instead of running to attain our own goals, why not run for a great cause. Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) was the obvious choice out of the participating organizations. 

My Uncle Frank passed away at the age of 60 from pancreatic cancer, 4 years after he was diagnosed. He was told by the doctors he had 4 months to 4 years left, passing away almost 4 years to the day of his diagnosis. He was a fighter & I can't express how heartbreaking it is to see somebody you love slowly suffer. My mother, who's now waiting to have heart surgery, just celebrated her 5th year this year of being cancer free, after she underwent internal radiation for uterus cancer. I have an aunt, uncle, and friends who have recovered from cancer as well in recent years. Even I, too, have had to have minor surgery for pre-cancer cells many years ago. Unfortunately, there's not a person who hasn't been affected by cancer in one way or another.

Please support our cause to raise funds for cancer research by making a donation, however small, through Stand Up To Cancer. We run for all that have suffered and those whom we've lost.  

Tanis:

I am looking so forward to participate in the SU2C cause with my friend Heather, it is going to make the experience of doing the run in Long Beach with her so much more meaningful and rewarding.  Endurance running has been a part of my life for the last five years and I love the feeling of doing a race especially when you have the chance to support a cause that is so important and means so much to so many people.

My family has been affected by cancer as well, one of my grandmothers was diagnosed with throat cancer and my other grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Both were treated and went into remission but sadly the cancer did ultimately come back for my grandmother with throat cancer.  Both of them were very strong and I miss them both everyday. 

The SU2C means so much to me on a personal level, there are so many people affected by this disease and the more support there is the closer we can get to a cure to beat it!!
