This year I’m racing for my friend, Phil, and his sister Noëlle. Phil and I met shortly after my diagnosis and we have similar tumors, and Patrick and I have become good friends with Phil and his wife, Kate.
Phil’s sister, Noëlle, was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2016 and passed away last September. She faced a very difficult diagnosis and showed enormous bravery. Phil recently shared one of Noelle’s favorite sayings by which she lived, “Do small things with great love,” and while I never met her, I am certain Noëlle left a legacy of kindness and humanity that all of us can carry on.
Thank you for joining my team and contributing again this year!
