Race For The Cure 2011

Last summer my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was a long year for her of battling chemotherapy and multiple surgeries (I think 5 total). I can’t even imagine what it would be like to go through any of it. It was also pretty hard on me because I couldn’t be with her all the time since I was up in Chicago. I went home as much as I could to spend time with her, but I just felt like I wanted to do more. I wanted to do something special for her to show her how much I care and admire her. So I started a Race For The Cure team (of Central Indiana) to surprise her. I invited all of her friends, family and coworkers to join the team. We had a total of 55 team members and also raised a total of $2,210. I was super excited about how everything turned out. On April 16th, our team walked the 5K race in honor of my mom. And most importantly, I can officially call my mom a SURVIVOR of breast cancer! She is now in remission, and I cannot tell you how good it feels to say that. I already can’t wait to organize Team MammerJammers again next year!

Team MammerJammers. Not everyone made the picture unfortunately, and the weather also scared some people away.

Me and my “little” brother, Ebby.

My brother, mom and me after the race. Of course we found pink ponchos!

And my favorite picture of the day. Mom, me, my cousin Taryn, my cousin Kiely, and my Aunt Diane (mom’s sister). I’m so glad they came out to walk with us! Love them all.
