Meet my best friend, Kelli.
She's gorgeous bald, isn't she?
She was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma at age 26.
We met our first week in college. Pledged the same sorority. Were attached at the hip for years to come. We were roommates. We traveled together. Shopped together. Borrowed toothpaste from each other. Ran errands for each other. Shared a beagle together. Shared the same group of friends. Her family is awesome and accepted me so much.
We lost her a few years ago.
Do you know what it is like to watch someone's husband, parents, sisters, grandparents, cousins let someone go?
Do you know what it's like to watch a nurse unplug life support machines one at a time?
We were all gathered at her bedside when she took her last breath here on Earth.
I'm running the San Diego Half Marathon in Kelli's memory.
We all know someone struggling with cancer.
Won't you help me raise funds to help find cures for blood cancers? Anything helps. $1, $5, $10 donations.
It's not for me.
It's for Kelli.
And all the rest of the folks out there who have lost loved ones or are going through this terrible disease we call cancer.
