Support me in the fight against cancer!

As some of you may know, my mother was diagnosed with a form of leukemia in September 2022. She bravely underwent chemotherapy, and a stem cell transplant in December 2023 while living in a hotel room in Boston. With my dad Bill by her side, they traveled back to Boston weekly for check ups. Being the strong, amazing woman she is, my mom has rarely, if ever, complained, remains optimistic and continues to show her unending love to those around her. 
Living thousands of miles away, I feel helpless at times. Although there is little I can do to help her, the Tri is one way to show support. To know our family, is to know we love each other fiercely.  The last few years have been tough but we continue to stay as positive as possible, celebrating her remission and life itself. Because of her amazing progress, she is able to travel to Minnesota next month to visit my family and I for the first time since 2019!

This summer I am joining the Tri For a Cure in its virtual format.  This allows participants more flexibility in completing the triathlon.  I will be joined by my sister Hannah and my mom, Elnel. We will participate as a team: Three Intrepid Women.  On July 13th the Tri for a Cure Triathlon will be held at Spring Point in South Portland, Maine.  

I am asking that you please donate. Every donation, regardless of the amount, is helpful and will be appreciated. With Gratitude, Emily
