…143 Days Until Race Day
Throughout these past 31 days, you’ve met children who have battled cancer and you’ve met doctors who have treated them.
Today, you won’t meet another child because my scheduled run wasn’t hard enough or long enough to dedicate to a childhood cancer patient.
No matter how “easy” or “uncomplicated” a cancer treatment goes, it’s still infinitely more difficult than what I did today.
Knowing that I wasn’t recognizing a new child today left me with a void that I didn’t know how I was going to fill.
Then the most wonderful thing happened and it cleared up my entire dilemma.
Today, meet Trish.
If you already know Trish, and many of you do, then you know the truth about what I am going to write.
Yes, Trish is my wife, my best friend, my greatest supporter and my security blanket.
In this post though, she is the Executive Director of Snowdrop Foundation. That is her official title, but it could easily be changed to The Lifeblood of the Organization.
Right before I’m headed out for my run, I get a call from Trish. She’s crying on the other end. She had just opened an envelope which contained a VERY LARGE, unsolicited donation from a private foundation.
You would have thought SHE’D won the lottery. But, it wasn’t for her. It was for Snowdrop Foundation.
A child rings the end of treatment bell and she cries.
A child earns their angel’s wings and she cries harder.
This organization is not a job for her.
It is her baby.
It is her love.
It is her heart and soul.
Plain and simple, it is her passion!
Trish is someone you likely won’t see in any photos or asking for any credit nor taking any when given to her.
Trish is an undisputed champion for pediatric cancer kids.
Who will you meet tomorrow?
