As many of you know, I am still recovering from my breast cancer surgery after being diagnosed in April. My double mastectomy was on June 13th.., and, although I am not fully back into my running, my goal is to participate in the Marine Corps Marathon at the end of October.
Running and staying healthy is my top priority as I continue to recover.
My physicians are in support of my running another marathon… it will not be a PR, but definitely one I will embrace with emotion.
I am running in honor of Zachary who will be 23 this December- 20 years after his diagnosis of autism. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate not only Zachary and all that he has achieved, but celebrating life and joy as I run now as a breast cancer survivor 💕!
Please help me support Organization for Autism Research by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance Organization for Autism Research's great cause!

Last year I was honored to have joined the OAR as I ran for the London Marathon team… now one year later, I have witnessed many personal changes and I again am honored to join the OAR and run for their Marine Corps Marathon team.
As I have seen in these past few months, it takes a village to get through life’s challenges… and all of you are part of that village.
