I’ll be participating in the 2019 Lahey Health 5K Cancer Walk & Run on June 22nd!
With your help, this event will raise $350,000 to support cancer services across Lahey Health. Proceeds of this event have a tremendous effect on patient care, helping purchase new equipment for treatment, offering cancer support groups and providing comforting spaces for patients and their families.
I'm walking on team, "Jeans Angels" in memory of a very special woman whom I had the honor of spending time with during her cancer struggle. But I also walk for the many people in my family who either succumbed to this horrible disease, or fought and beat the beast! Grampy, Grammy, Milly, the mother figure I'll never forget, Lori, the cousin everyone loved. Paul, my funny brother in law, you are lost but not forgotten. And for Aunt Karen, my hero since birth, you fought and won, I'll forever be grateful to the Universe for sparing you. And to my cousin Lynne, who fought skin cancer and won, I love you so very much! For my step-mom whom we lost a year and a half ago. She was the funniest woman I've ever known. She is dearly missed. Love you Mom. For my friend and collegue, Melanie, who went to the depths of hell and back last year after being diagnosed with one of the rarest blood cancers there is. She's come out on the other side and I'm honored to be a part of her "Sister Tribe." Lastly, myself, I'm so grateful to have won the battle and have the opportunity to see my children flourish into young adults. I'm sure I'm forgetting someone as this disease is more common than we'd like. But whoever is out there fighting the fight, know you are not alone, and never will be. "We've got your back!"
