Support me in the fight against cancer!

Cancer is the dreaded word that too many families are familiar with. In 2014, at the age of 22, I was diagnosed with Acute promyelocytic leukemia. I am excited to be apart of an event that raises money for people battling cancer in the state of Maine.

I am also running this race in honor of my beautiful sister-in-law, Amanda, who despite maximum efforts and resources lost her battle to CIC-DUX4 Sarcoma in 2017 after a 5 month battle at the age of 31. 

This year I'll be participating in the 17th 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. MCF leads a statewide effort to foster and grow the most promising and effective cancer-fighting efforts available to the people of Maine through a combination of grant-based financial support and coalition building. MCF serves as a hub for Maine's cancer community, but they can't do it without you. Join us as we invest across the state to change the story of cancer in Maine.

Every dollar counts! With your support, we can make a difference! I am so excited to cross the finish line not only as a contestant, but as a survivor, in a cause that helps so many! Cancer tries but we TRI harder!
