Hello Dear Ones,
One year has passed since I completed my Chemo therapy. I am healthier, stronger, and happier. Thanks to the Livestrong at YMCA program, I now swim 3 miles a week. I took and passed the Lifeguard course and work as one at the Maplewood YMCA. I row a 5k a week on the ERG,(rowing machine) and I row on the water once a week with the amazing crew members of the Naiades Oncology Rowing, (all women cancer survivors). I have set myself a fitness goal to participate in the IRON GIRL Triathlon in August 2014. I am asking you to support me as I participate in celebrating life beyond Cancer. I'll be doing the hard part... the 5k. Donate what you can! We've got to invest in the places that are fighting the good fight against Cancer. And remember to send me your positive energy on June 2nd, I could use all I can get!

The Warrior Walk will be a fun-filled event for cancer survivors to connect with one another and share in celebration with their friends, family and caregivers. Today, there are more than 12 million cancer survivors in the United States, a number that increases every day. These survivors deserve to have the fullest, healthiest possible life after their cancer care yet face many ongoing health challenges. The effects of cancer treatment can be far-reaching, and dependent upon many factors, including the type and progression of the disease, length of treatment, and the ever-evolving drugs and therapies used.
