Did you know one in five cancers is preventable with an active, healthy lifestyle? VCU Massey Cancer Center is working to save lives and find cures for cancer right here in Virginia and promote an active, healthy lifestyle for our community.

To support the cause, I am participating in the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k to raise funds and awareness for Massey, the official charitable partner of the 10k. My 10k will have special meaning as a way to honor those I love who are battling – or have battled cancer.

I have participated many times in the 10k and helped raised funds because it was a good cause and the race was just fun. Never did I think the word cancer or research would impact my personal life as it has this past year. Many of you know my mom was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer last September. Shocking as it may sound, only 15% of Ovarian Cancer is found in early stages. There is still so much work that needs to be done in finding advancements in early detection and treatment.

My mom, who is the toughest woman I know has fought a tremendous battle (mentally and physically) with her treatment. She is one of the very few women who have been able to complete this very aggressive therapy. We owe a lot to her mental fortitude, our father's unwavering love and dedication, her deep friendships, new grandbabies and a lot of humor!

When you make a donation towards our fundraising goal, you join our team effort to support cancer research, honor those who have battled cancer and unite our community towards a cure. Will your dollar be the one that cures cancer?

My sister and I have set a goal of $4,000 but we can do better than that! Will you help us put Cancer on the Run?

Thank You!
Lucy
