 I am running my FIRST MARATHON!!

After running the princess half marathon this past February, I felt so alive and strong and healthy for the first time in a long time. So I decided to sign up for the MCM in October to push myself more. After the past 2 years of hell, I am running to prove to myself that I can survive anything and come back stronger than I thought possible. This is my big F-U to brain cancer, hospital waiting rooms, frustrating nurses and doctors, life-changing phone calls, loneliness, depression, anxiety, an awful job, days where i couldnt get out from under the covers, crying, screaming, losing weight, hating everything and everyone, therapy costs (yikes), eating my emotions, feeling crazy, feeling weak, and on and on. The evil reaches of my mom's brain cancer diagnosis and death have forever changed me, but they will NOT defeat me.

Please support me :)

Thanks for visiting my personal fundraising page! I have committed to running the Marine Corps Marathon or MCM10K as a part of Race Towards A Cure.  The money I raise will benefit cutting-edge brain cancer research through Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure, and get us one step closer to a cure!  

I can't do this without your help! Please consider supporting my efforts with a donation, and join in the fight against brain cancer.  To make a donation, click on the "Donate" button to the right.

Thanks in advance for your support!
