Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you for visiting my personal page and helping me to reach my fundraising goal!
I am joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure - Austin on March 27th, 2022. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
Each year, over 84,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. More than 120 types of brain tumors exist, making effective treatment complicated. Cutting edge research is needed as we continue to make strides in this fight.
Alec Wirt, my college sweetheart, was diagnosed with glioblastoma IV on December 31, 2021 with an expected survival time of 12-18 months. Alec lived for another 16 months before he passed. Alec is the strongest person I ever met. He was the funniest person I ever laughed with. He was the best dancer I ever two stepped with. His diagnoses never effected he's lively, bubbly spirit. He was the type a person that lit up a room. He could make friends with any stranger and be willing to give the last shirt he had off he's back. He fought cancer as hard as he could: two brain surgeries, chemo treatments, and radiation treatments. He had the "give me all you got, Doc" mentality. During this fight, he never expressed negative attitude. He had all of his nurses and doctors laughing. He would tell me that he dreaded going to he's treatment appointments, because the cancer patients around him looked defeated, and he never wanted to feel that way.
Alec, you will always be my hero. I will continue to live life knowing you are with me. Any time that I feel that I'm battling life... I will fight like you and say "give me all you got!" You are truely an inspiration. I haven't ran consistently in a long time, but I take on this challenge knowing you will be my number one cheerleader.
Please consider making a donation today to help me reach my goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
