My childhood friend, Maikki, lost her long battle with a very rare form of bile duct cancer this past year. For those who knew Maikki, they knew a strong, compassionate, dedicated, smart, loving woman who saw no challenge as too big. Maikki worked to support those going through living organ donation, being a recipient herself, as well as encourage others to become donors and hoped to bring more awareness to the less acknowledged forms of cancer. I am hoping to continue her mission through walking as well as contribute to the much needed research of a cure for cancer. I’m walking for Maikki, for me, for my children, for my family and friends and for all of those awaiting a cure and those who will need a cure in the future! Please join me or if you can, make a donation toward my goal. Any amount is so so much appreciated!
