Why I Run
I am running in Buffalo's Undy Run to support awareness, research, and support of those with colorectal cancer. My brother, Mike, was diagnosed with colon cancer recently at the age of 36. He's a very motivated, proactive, and strong person and is fighting this head on! Colon cancer is the 3rd most common cancer among men and women. Unfortunately, we are seeing a significant increase in colon cancer in those under the age of 50. The problem with this cancer is that it is usually asymptomatic and goes undetected for quite some time. Luckily for my brother Mike, he was able to catch it. Cancer sucks. But we can continue to make strides in research to help fight it! Thanks so much for visiting my page!
