On August 27th, a dear friend Jackie Bayley, lost her 2.5 year battle to Ovarian Cancer devastatingly at the age of 34 years old.
Jackie is sorely missed and we are left here wondering why???
I've teamed up with several close friends and it's our turn to fight this battle that Jackie so courageously took on.
I will be running the Detroit Free Press Marathon Relay October 16, 2011 to raise money & awareness for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund in memory of Jackie Bayley.
Together, it is a goal to raise over $30,000 for this ever so important cause. My friends and I are teaming up to run a relay in honor of Jackie who was originally diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer in April, 2009.
Jackie Bayley was an amazing person who fought to the very end. She was a true inspiration to everyone she touched. Her determination, confidence, and never ending drive to be the very best at everything she did was what set Jackie aside from most.
So, if you are able to, please consider donating whatever you can to my efforts. Our team is a strong group that is determined to fight this fight for our lost 34 year old friend and the amazing number of people that are currently, or will have to fight Ovarian Cancer sometime in their lifetime.
Thank you so much for your support!
