In February, Allison Dunn was like any ambitious 33 year old, balancing her busy life between raising her three young kids, working at a fulfilling job and still finding time to be an avid runner. This all changed when she was diagnosed with grade 4 glioblastoma, a rare form of aggressive cancer where the average person lives for 18 months.
The diagnosis was surprising, devastating and, like each cancer diagnosis, completely unfair. Allison, who was full of life, confidence and compassion, did not deserve this draw in life. So, in memory of Allison and to help prevent other families from experiencing a similar fate, we have started the Dunn with Cancer run.
Together, on September 19th we can run together with Allison to raise money for brain cancer research.
