I am running a 50k on March 23 in Augusta at the fairgrounds. I am grateful everyday that my body is strong enough and able to do this. I know that there will come a day when this won't be possible but until then, this is what I do and enjoy it. Along with that enjoyment, I know there are people struggling with so many things right now and I would like to put more of a purpose to me running in circles.
The son of a friend from high school was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma Cancer on January 25th at age 4 1/2 Matthew Augustine, was a smart, strong, healthy child up to this point.
January 29th, the primary tumor was removed in whole from his right adrenal gland.
February 9th, he began his first round of chemo - he will need to have 6 rounds of chemo between February and June followed by a bone marrow replacement using stem cell regeneration
The bone marrow regeneration is expected to take place summer 2013
He will require 6 months to a year of maintenance treatments after the bone marrow procedure, before he is declared in remission
God Bless Matthew Augustine... onward to 100% healed!
I would like this run to benefit Matthew and his family. That's where you come in. I'm sure their medical bills are piling up and I also know that there is currently one income because his dad has become the primary caregiver to Matthew. Please join me in supporting this strong family with financial contributions, prayer and well wishes. If you are able to support financially, you can do so from this page. NO donation is too small and would love to go well over my goal. Everything helps!!!
Thank you for your support.
