Cancer is one of those things that it has affected someone you know. It's affected people I love. My grandfather at 99 got skin cancer on his forehead. Oh, and when he had his 100th birthday with all 5 of his children, that man was not pleased with the fact he had a scar on his head. My dad's best friend was diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer in 2004. He only lived 2 months after his diagnosis.
"We need your help.
I need your help.
We need money for research.
It may not save my life.
It may save my children's life.
It may save someone you love.
And it's very important."
Cancer sucks and I want a cure for it. I will run as many races as I can that support cancer research. I will continue to run those races until I either, A- can't anymore or B- a cure is found.

Here are 2 speeches from two men who fought cancer until cancer took over. They didn't lose their fights against cancer, they fought until the last second. And now, we fight for them to find a cure for this wicked disease.
Don't give up. Don't ever give up.
