Why I Run

My beloved husband, Simon, was diagnosed with colon cancer in October of 2017, at age 36. He passed away on June 10, 2019 at age 37. Our little boys and I miss him every day. We yearn for him every day. We hope for the day when research and medical advances improve the odds for those diagnosed with colon cancer.

I am participating in the \Washington DC ScopeItOut 5K on March 29, 2020 at Freedom Plaza. Please consider supporting my involvement in ScopeItOut with a tax-deductible donation. Your donation goes towards research to prevent colorectal cancer as well as providing resources for patients. For more information on ScopeItOut, please visit scopeitout.org or the Colorectal Cancer Alliance's website at ccalliance.org. Thank you for your generosity.
