As you all know, I lost my Dad the end of January to inoperable colon cancer...which was his third and final battle with cancer. He had pancreatic cancer over 18 years ago as well as stomach cancer 4 years ago and I was always so amazed and impressed at what a fighter he was...he NEVER complained, he NEVER indicated he was in pain and he NEVER gave up. I also lost my golfing buddy Polly to stomach cancer...she too was a warrior to the end. I have so many family members and friends that deal with cancer each and every day and I marvel at their determination and stamina and optimistic outlook. It is such a devastating disease and one that we all must help to find a cure for sooner rather than later.
So, once again I am participating in the 2019 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
