Nate and his Dad after Nate’s first marathon in Cincinnati.
Hi friends! I want to share something with you all that’s very near and dear to my heart. As most of you know, my Father-in-law is currently battling a rare form of cancer (read about his story here). You may also know that he used to be a marathoner. Nate took up running as a way to follow in his Dad’s footsteps (pretty literally, I suppose!) and found a passion for it that he never dreamed would be so strong. He has a pretty lofty (and inspiring) goal to use his love of running marathons for an amazing cause – to raise awareness and money for a rare form of cancer that gets very little attention or funding – Cholangiocarcinoma.
I won’t spoil the details for you! You can read them all over on his blog. I promise you’ll think he’s a crazy person when you read what he plans to do, but if anyone can pull it off – I know that he can! If you feel inclined to support this cause in any way please contact me via email. We are going to need a lot of help from around the world to make this happen!
It’s important that we work together to make sure that all types of cancer receive the same attention, care, and funding. A diagnosis of Cholangiocarcinoma is almost a certain death sentence as of right now. We want to change that, and with a little bit of help we hope that we can spare other families the pain that we are going through right now.
