Friends and family and those that are here by accident...welcome and thank you! As you are all mostly aware, I was diagnosed with a Grade III Anaplastic Astrocytoma on Halloween in 2011. I know, even the name sounds scary and spooky. That Halloween sucked, but since that fateful day, I have been able to celebrate 6 other Halloweens and my 7th coming this year. I was never a fan of Halloween, except of course for the candy, but instead of hating an innocent holiday celebrated by children and adults alike, I take that spooky experience and turn it into one hell of a hay ride called life.
So, why am I talking about Halloween in March?...it was the starting gun to the rest of my life and I wanted to ask you all to join me this Spring for the ABTA Denver Run/Walk to keep this noggin joggin and to celebrate life and all it brings...even if it is the worst piece of candy I ever did receive. I know that everyone has causes near and dear to your heart, so give generously to those, and if you have a few bucks left over, I would greatly appreciate your donation. For those of you that live near or in Denver, or if you are like my mom, flying in from the East Coast, join us for a morning of remembrance, celebration and hope. No matter what our futures hold, remember and learn from those precious people and moments gone by, celebrate this and every moment, and have hope that there will be a day when there is no disease we cannot cure.
So, come one, come all, who walk or crawl, just bring sneakers and a smile; we will walk, we will run and then gather for a while.
Without you my friends running in life can be a difficult race; but because of your love and constant support, I'm planning a long and steady pace.
So join this team of merry fools as we wander through Cheesman Park; let's let cancer know that we are here to make an ever lasting mark!
Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. To show my support, I will be participating in the American Brain Tumor Association’s BT5K Breakthrough for Brain Tumors Run & Walk. Money raised by the BT5K will provide critical funding for brain tumor research and for supportive patient care.
You can support me in my efforts by making a donation to the American Brain Tumor Association.
