Who am I? That is a good question. I am a person who tries. Tries to be a better husband today than I was yesterday. Tries to be a better father everyday. Tries to be a better person than I was the day before. Ronald Reagan once had a quote about making a difference in the world and that of a Marine. Well, maybe no matter who you are, you just have to keep trying... trying to make a difference for those you love, and what you can, in the world around you everyday.
For the purposes of this fundraiser, I was to partake in my first full Ironman with my little sister and my cousin. Shortly after we registered for Ironman Louisville and just before we began our training, our cousin was diagnosed with cancer for the second time and will be unable to compete. After contemplating over the repugnance of cancer and the effects it causes, I thought maybe the best way to help is to: educate, influence, and assist.
Educate everyone that I meet the impact these classes of diseases have on those diagnosed, their family and friends, and how to detect early signs of the disease.
Influence others to make a stand; all it takes is one person to make a difference.
Assist within our abilities; whether this be to volunteer, donate, or advocate.
So… who am I? I am just a person who would like for us all to try to make a difference.
