Why She Tries
This event is life changing, the camaraderie is unbelievable and the cause is so important.
This year I am participating to honor 3 special friends. A coworker, who works with me in the NICU at MMC, who is a special person fighting a battle to cure a stage 3 astrocytoma (brain tumor) and two very special friends in Texas who have battled lung cancer and lymphoma in the last 12 months. All of these are very special and extremely important people to me. I am constantly amazed by their bravery and perseverance. Cancer touches everyone.
I missed participating last year because I fell and broke my hand while on vacation and couldn't train. I am back again this year because I love this event and appreciate the opportunity to raise funds for a cause that touches me, touches everyone.
All the funds raised goes directly to people with cancer, the sponsors have generous donated to underwrite the cost of the event. I appreciate your considering a donation on my behalf.
