Hi Friends and Family, I am partnering with Triumph Cancer Foundation and raising money for Triumph to the Summit 2020. Eleven years ago this week, I heard the words, “It’s cancer.” As a single mom of two young children, I spent my Labor Day glued to the Internet, terrified and determined to learn everything I needed to know to beat it so I could watch my kids grow. Several years later, I found myself facing the possibility that my cancer came back...I was one of the lucky ones, it wasn’t a reoccurrence, but rather a fracture in my hip from weakened bones. The chemo had saved my life, but left a broken body in its wake. I stumbled across Triumph Cancer Foundation and it’s amazing program, Triumph Fitness. With the help of trainers and hard work, we put the pieces back together. Two days ago, I woke up early and hit the Mt. Tallac Trailhead at 3:00 AM to climb and crawl and fight my way to the summit. I had a headlamp and two amazing friends with me that encouraged me along the way, our goal was to see the sunrise and beat the heat. I’m not going to lie, I wanted to quit several times. This hike is so representative of the battle against my cancer; there were moments I felt strong and moments I felt weak, moments I want to cry (and did) and moments I took in the beauty of living, moments I thought the challenge would win and the moment I TRIUMPHED. I fought my way to the top to raise money for this amazing organization... COVID has hit them hard but cancer waits for no one, survivors still need the help after treatment and I want to do my part to see that Triumph Fitness is there when they need them. Please take a moment and donate to this amazing cause. I would love to hit or exceed my fundraising goal, I appreciate your support! You can donate now and by hitting “Give Now” on the upper right.
You can give with any major credit card and it only takes 30 seconds. I appreciate it so very much.
Thank you for joining me!
