Living this past year without my sister has been like learning to walk again. It's like waking up and realizing that your missing a crucial part of you. But, thanks to cancer, that's what I've had to do. It's not fair, it's not what was suppose to happen. But, I held Jill's hand in her last hours and promised to keep her memory alive, to never let her nephews forget her and to continue on this fight against cancer for her. So I fight, with more emotion and motivation than I've ever had in my life. This is why I'm doing this race- for the 7th time. But only my 2nd without my sister at the finish line.
Support me in the fight against cancer!
This year I'll be participating in the 11th Annual Maine Cancer Foundation Tri for a Cure. Maine Cancer Foundation is committed to reducing cancer incidence and mortality rates in Maine, with 100% of funds raised by the Foundation used to benefit the people of Maine. They lead a state-wide effort to advance the most promising and effective cancer-fighting efforts available through a combination of grant-based financial support and coalition building. MCF's Challenge Cancer 2020 initiative is working to reduce cancer incidence and mortality in Maine 20% by 2020 through prevention, screening and early detection, and access to the highest quality care for every Mainer.
Every dollar counts! Please consider a donation. Cancer tries but we TRI harder!
