8 years ago my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was going off to college. Shortly after that she was clear of the disease for 5 years. 2 years ago she was re-diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer that spread throughout her body. I remember that day as if it was yesterday. My mom is the strongest woman i know, but when I saw her for the first time going through her treatment, was the weakest I had ever felt. It took but one look into her eyes that she was able to pick me back up because I knew she was going to get through this. She still has a long fight ahead of her, but she is surrounded by so many friends and family members that care about her to the ends of this earth. I fight for my mom and everyone else out there fighting this battle. Everyone has their battles, lets work for a cure and defeat cancer!

On February 10, 2018, I will join the Miami Dolphins and thousands of South Florida residents to tackle cancer here in our community. Over the last seven years, the Dolphins Cancer Challenge has raised over $22.5 million with 100% of participant-raised funds going directly to cancer research at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Whether you ride, run, walk, volunteer or donate, we are all fighting cancer. I need your support to help me reach my goal and I thank you for supporting me in my fundraising efforts as I #TACKLECANCER!
