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 Team Breakthrough Endurance program and running the Chicago Marathon in October. This will be my second time participating in the Chicago Marathon, and I'm thrilled that my participation will be able to help such a great organization.
I have decided to participate with Team Breakthrough as this cause is near and dear to myself and my family. My sister in law, Danie, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in November 2017. I've watched her journey over the past year and half from her having brain surgery all the way to completing a year of chemo. Her positive outlook on this crummy and difficult situation has been inspiring. I want to do my part in helping raise awareness on brain tumors and provide important funding through running this marathon. And I'm thrilled that Danie will be running with me in the race together as part of Team Breakthrough.
