Steve is my brother-in-law. To my sister, Gina - he's the love of her life. He's quiet, hard-working, kind and always willing to help out.
Earlier this year he was experiencing head-aches which finally got so bad he went in and got checked out. There were two lumps and further testing revealed it was cancer. They were able to remove one, but the other is being treated with chemotherapy.
As you can imagine, this has been extremely difficult on Gina and the family. Driving sometimes more than an hour each way for tests, checkups and medication is taking it's toll on Gina and Steve, not to mention their kids Hannah and Jacob. With all the attendant costs as well as missed work-time, things are getting tight.
So you can imagine my profound gratitude that so many of you have stepped forward to help alleviate this burden and help them out. You have pledged my first fifty miler, you have shared my facebook updates and you have sent many kind thoughts, prayers and wishes their way.
November 15th is fast approaching. If you haven't joined this loving community yet, it's not too late. We'll keep the light on for you until that cool Saturday in November when I make good the pledge to run fifty miles for Steve.
