I am a survivor. I am a fighter. I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer in August of 2011. My story is like many others, full of fear, and determination but more importantly surviving. As a survivor, I want to make a difference in another cancer patients life. Join me in my fight and my journey to run 26.2 miles to help raise awareness and money for future cancer research. By living, fighting and being strong it's my hope that one day we will have a cure for this thing called cancer. 

The LIVESTRONG Foundation serves people affected by cancer and empowers them to take action against this disease that is now the world's leading cause of death. LIVESTRONG has become a symbol of hope and inspiration to people affected by cancer around the world.

The money I raise will support programs and services for cancer survivors. These resources help people diagnosed with cancer face the challenges of the disease head on and live life on their own terms. Please support me as I make a difference in the cancer fight through my participation in Team LIVESTRONG. Thank you so much!
