For those that haven't heard my story...
One evening out of the blue, I had a seizure in March 2008. I was rushed to the hospital to discover that I had a Grade III Brain tumor (Anaplastic Astrocytoma). The follow day I had a craniotomy. After surgery, I had to go through intense therapy to relearn how to use my lt side. Then I underwent radiation/chemo therapy. Finally, I finished chemotherapy in March of 2009. I've learned so much during that time in my life. I'm very fortunate that I am able to be here and participate in this event with my family and friends.
I could not have completed this achievement without the LOVE, SUPPORT, and PRAYERS of my family, friends, and strangers that have become friends. Thank you to all!
Thankfully, all my scans have been clear. THIS MARCH WILL BE 10 YEARS FOR ME!!!!
I'm extremely lucky to be doing so well! Unfortunately, others are not in the same case. That's why I will continue to raise awareness and inspiration for this disease.
Last year was the 9th time my family, friends, and fellow survivors joined me for this fun event. I have so much gratitude for all that has been done for this fundraiser. Thank you to all whom donated and participated over the past years.
I'm looking forward to another great year! Thank you!!
