THE STORY:

Toni and I went to high school together in Plantation, FL. She was a cheerleader; I was a tennis player. We both ended up in Chicagoland. I reconnected with Toni at a comedy show starring a mutual high school friend. I learned then that Toni was ill. I am blessed to be healthy and to be able to run long distances. I am running the Chicago Marathon to raise money to defray costs of Toni's medical bills. She is the mother of two beautiful girls who stays strong for them. Please contribute to her fund, no matter how small the donation!

Toni was diagnosed with LUPUS in 2000, after their 1st daughter, Madison, was born. For those of you unfamiliar with Lupus, it's a autoimmune disease that attacks normal healthy tissue that can cause severe damage to joints, kidneys, skin, the blood, the heart, and lungs. Two years later their second daughter, Kaitlyn, was born but the lupus attacked and weakened one kidney to the point of kidney dialysis 2-3 times a week.

In 2010 Toni faced surgery when a cancerous tumor developed on her good kidney. Although the surgery was successful, 2 more tumors developed at the base of her brain. With chemo & radiation, they shrunk enough so they could be surgically removed. 2013 brought on a mild stroke in January and a mild heart attack in August. Between those months Toni had many hospitals stays trying to control her blood pressure & blood counts.

2014 has Toni facing 2 new cancerous tumors at the base of her brain, one on top of the other which is causing seizures. At 41 years old, Toni spends most of her days in bed or in a wheelchair.
