Why We Run
Imagine 48 years old thinking life is good—actually life is great. Finally, after struggling with addiction celebrating your 3 year anniversary of sobriety and hearing the words you have stage IV colon cancer – shock, disbelief, anger, sadness. For many reaching for a drink might be the first thing we’d think of to dent this reality of just being handed a potential death sentence. My brother, Andrew, sought another path to journey—that was to FIGHT. His mission was to eradicate this horrible menace not only for himself but for everyone. He was diagnosed in May 2012. Everyone and anyone who ever had the opportunity to meet him understood just how hard he fought to overcome this disease. His journey finally came to an end June 8, 2017 at age 53.
It’s only been 3 years and his quest continues to eradicate a disease that can be CURED, a disease that can be PREVENTED, and a disease that can be ENDED in our lifetime.
Let us rally as a community around the Colorectal Cancer Alliance by supporting TEAM ANDREW.
REMEMBER YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
