This race is personal. Too many of us have experienced breast cancer firsthand or through someone close to us. We support family members, friends and colleagues on their journey battling this terrible disease. Race for the Cure is more than just another run or walk. It is a renewed commitment to do all we can to end this disease, a celebration of survivorship and a time to honor those we have lost along the way
As I said, this race is personal. My mother, Eleanore Russell developed breast cancer at age 83. She went through all of her treatment before telling me and my two sisters. She didn’t want any of us to worry about her. Eventually, her cancer metastasized and went to her lungs. She chose not to have any treatment that time around. She told me about it and asked that I tell my two sisters. Very difficult time. She succumbed to lung cancer at age 90. My sister, Shayne, and I were with her as she breathed her last. Other friends and family members have battled this terrible disease.
Please support my participation on March 5th in the 2017 Race for the Cure with a donation, and join us in the global movement to end breast cancer forever. There is only one way we can accomplish this: Together.
