Welcome to My Personal Page
Over the last two years, two of my dearest friends have been battling brain cancer as a family. Most of you have met my best friend Kristen, and many of you have heard their story. If you haven't, here it goes: a month before the birth of their son, Kristen's husband Chris was diagnosed with brain cancer. While the Connellys are fortunate to have access to some of the best doctors in the country, much about Chris's specific type of tumor, anaplastic ependymoma, remains unknown.
Last year, we formed a Race for Hope team and surprised everyone by coming in 2nd place in our first year. We are once again joining forces to raise as much money for brain cancer research as possible, so that Chris can continue to receive the most cutting edge treatment, and so that other families will not have to go through what they have. Please consider donating to this cause that is so near and dear to me. And if you are local, join us for a great day on the National Mall at the Race for Hope 5K. Please register as a team member if you want to participate as a walker or a runner with the Connelly team.
