6 years down...

I'm running the The Race for Hope - DC for my son, Bennett, who is a survivor of Medulloblastoma - the most common form of malignant brain tumor in children. He was diagnosed in January of 2008 and received nearly a year's worth of treatment including chemotherapy and radiation. Like all parents in our situation, we couldn't believe this was happening to our little boy and spent most of 2008 in a constant state of fear, praying for Bennett's recovery.

Thanks to Bennett's amazing care teams at Children's National Medical Center and Fairfax INOVA Hospital, today he is a happy and healthy boy who loves eating pancakes and playing golf in our playroom. After nearly 6 years of negative MRI's since his last treatment in October 2008, we have the highest hopes for the future.

I ran my first Race for Hope while Bennett was still receiving therapy and having a very difficult time. This year, he will cross the finish line with me. We hope to see you on the mall for the race!
