Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
My mom is thriving with metastatic breast cancer.
I always used to saying she was living with metastatic breast cancer, until one day she corrected me.
I hope that raising money through this run, will assist not only people with breast cancer, people with breast cancer in remission, but the other thousands of people thriving with metastatic breast cancer. Many people don’t talk about the impact that metastatic breast cancer (MBC) has on an individual’s life- isolation, loneliness, fear, anxiety can be a real burden. People living with MBC need real support from clinical care providers, from researchers, from their communities, and from their loved ones. This support needs community funding.
My mom was in remission some time awhile back, taking a pill each day that was supposed to keep the estrogen away. But, that nasty c word decided to rear its ugly head. “The cancer is back.”- as if one battle wasn’t enough. The cancer didn’t just come back once, it came back twice in different locations. My strong momma is pushing through like she always does. Although she’s living scan to scan, she’s thriving - while her MBC is stable.
My mom is continuously supported by friends she has met who have cancer, had cancer or are MBC Thriver’s. The courage they have together is immeasurable. This year, I am proud to run next to these women, that show me anything is possible.
My mom is my breast friend (I know you see what I did there). She is warm like rays of the sun, she is the epitome of comfort. She let’s me give her hugs that are a little too tight (watch out implants!), she encourages me to do everything I set my mind to (another dog? Another degree? What’s the difference!), and she reminds me time and time again that the dishes can wait.
Don’t feel obligated to donate, but feel free to join us as we walk/ run October 4th.
Hopefully, one day, “you have cancer” or “your cancer is back” will be nonexistent. Until then, my mom and her ladies thrive!
Love you, Momma!
