In July 2017, my mom Barbara was diagnosed with CTCL, a rare form of Non-Hodgkins lymphoma that affects lymph nodes throughout the body, and causes painful lumps to appear on the skin. For nearly 2 years, I have watched her fight courageously as she has attempted to beat the disease. Through many different treatment types and countless hours spent in chemotherapy, she has inspired me to live my life to the fullest. In late March/early April, she will be receiving a stem cell transplant at Jeanes Hospital, and will be in the hospital recovering when I run Broad Street. The hope is that this may be the key to turning her cancer around, so she can come see me in person in 2020! Please help me donate to the continued research of cancer treatments, so that one day stories like my mom's are a thing of the past.
