Honoring Princess Heather

Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend

" The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I started!"

My 21 year old daughter, Heather, was diagnosed with two forms of blood cancer in 2008. She responded very well to treatments and was in remission, but the drugs that saved her lfie also damaged her body and she died in 2009. 

As the 10th anniversary of her cancer diagnosis comes around in 2018 I decided to run the Princess Half Marathon in honor of my princess. I am not a runner and this is something I never dreamed of doing, but I feel very strongly about making a huge deal out of the 10 year anniversary.

Heather loved children and would do anything for them. I can think of no better way to honor her than with a donation to The Children's Miracle Network.

Thank you for your support!
