Almost 9 years have passed since we lost Maureen to an aggressive form of cancer. Only 6 months from the day she was diagnosed to the day that she died.
She left behind a husband, 3 young children, family members and many friends. She was a gem and we are all grateful that she crossed our paths and touched our lives while she was here.
Maureen's Warriors for Life have been participating in the Jimmy Fund Walk since 2011. We walk for Maureen and for the many others who we have personally lost to cancer as well as all others whose lives have been shattered by this ugly disease.
I have too many, friends and family on my list of people who I will carry in my heart during this walk, including my dad who lost his battle with lung cancer in April of 2012.
Together, we walk as a team, remembering, laughing, crying, moving forward, looking back, and standing tall to help fight this disease that has taken too many, too soon.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
