Why I Run

I was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, in September 1988. At 10 years old, the biggest worry I had ever faced was passing spelling tests…and in the blink of an eye, my biggest worry was now whether or not I was going to live or die!  But, St. Jude was there and gave me hope!  The summer after I was diagnosed, I was in Memphis getting chemotherapy, and remember meeting this strange group of people.  They were runners and were getting ready to travel back to PEORIA, for the kids of St. Jude!  Now, running was about as bad as chemo in my book, so I could not believe that people I had never even met were willing to this “horrible” thing… for me!  As the time passed, I got to know some of the runners and what amazing people they were.  In fact, they inspired another patient and me to make a promise to one another that we would get healthy enough to be runners someday.  Well, about a year after my friend and I made that pact, he passed away, never getting the chance to run.  I was determined to run for him!  But, soon after he passed and I went off chemo, I relapsed.  This time my battle seemed harder, but St. Jude never gave up on me, and the hope of becoming a runner helped me never give up either!  I am happy to say that was over 20 years ago!  I am now a HEALTHY wife, mother, and Memphis to Peoria Runner!!!  2014 was my 17th year running!  I run to prove I beat cancer, I run for all the patients who will never get the chance, I run to show current patients there is hope, and I run to show all the runners that ever step DOES make a difference in the life of a child!  Thank you!
