Kara's Story

Kara.jpgOn October 19th, 2010, my life was derailed. Over the summer, I found a lump in my breast. That lump led to many doctors’ visits, including two mammograms, an ultrasound, and finally a biopsy to determine I had breast cancer.

The first reaction my husband and I had was one of pure devastation. But then we paused. And soon, we were overcome with an overwhelming motivation to fight the cancer. At the time, my children were five and seven years old, and for them, my husband, and ultimately myself, the battle was on. We were determined to push through the disease and we did it as a team.

I was surrounded with overwhelming love from the school where I teach, my church ‘family’, friends, and my kids and husband. Everyone helped me realize I could make it through. Any day I woke up feeling low, they were there to boost me up.

After a few surgeries, multiple rounds of chemo and radiation, combined with hard work and dedication to the fight, I am free and clear of cancer.

As difficult as it was, I’ve never felt so loved in my life. I feel like participating in the CIBC Run for the Cure allows me to pay forward the support I had while battling the disease.

On Sunday, September 30, I am running for myself. Who are you running for?
