Why I'm Running
If you know me, you know that my grandmother was my hero. She helped raised me and I give her a lot of the credit for the man I am today. A few months after she was diagnosed with cancer and after many rounds of chemo, the doctors told her that they didn't see any cancer left. Of course, I was super happy to hear that my grandmother had not only survived cancer but beat.
Unfortunately, that happiness was quickly snuffed out when only a few days later, the doctors confirmed my worst fear. They were mistaken about the cancer being gone. Instead it had spread. It spread to her brain. That was around November. On March 10th, 2014 my grandmother took her last breath.
I run for the survivors. I run for those who fought hard. I run for those who we keep in our memories. I run so that there will be a day where no one has to lose their hero to the monster that is cancer.
