United to Fight Cancer!

At the end of last year, in the usual blur of holiday craziness, we found out that my mom, Maeve & Will's beloved Nana, was diagnosed with colon and breast cancer. 

Getting this news sucks.  There is no other way to say it. But as my mom always says, "It is what it is." She is facing this with the strength, bravery and humor that she's instilled in my sister and me our entire lives. 

And as she begins her year of treatment, there wasn't much of a question in my mind as to one of the things that Pete and I would be doing this year.  Over the years, we'd raced in honor of friends, in memory of loved ones and in support of strangers. Obviously, we would now run for her. 

So after a 5 year hiatus, Pete and I are coming out of endurance racing retirement to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the American Cancer Society in the fight against cancer and will be running the NJ Half Marathon in support of my Warrior Mom. Our mission is clear – keep fighting for the day when no one hears the words “you have cancer.”

 
Please join us in the fight – donate to our team and help us save more lives!
