Cancer is tough, but we're tougher

"Mama got sick in September 2016 and passed away on the 2nd of December of the same year. 2 months. 2 short months. She was 62 and there was so much she still had to live, to see, to dream of; so much time with her family that was stolen from us. She would have loved nothing more than to see her grandchildren grow up while she held hands with dad. Mama was mother, wife, best friend, abuela, confidant, eternal sidekick and forever rock chick. She was laughter, conversations, hugs, dances, hours in the phone fixing the World, the scent of most delicious dishes. She was strong but soft, she was brave, a fierce warrior, she was Love. More that anything, Mama was love. And I know that is what she would want her legacy to be: Love.

Love is the motor of Team Con Mama. We started walking in her memory, to raise funds towards women's cancer research and help the Perkins Institute put an end to this horrible disease. The Walk became a way to channel my grief into something that Mama would be proud of, our little contribution to the big goal of one day not losing any more mothers, sisters, daughters, friends to the claws of Cancer. We created incredible memories, strengthened friendships, faced whatever obstacles we encountered, walked together towards the end line of those kilometres that symbolizes the end of this fight. Warriors interlocking arms and ready to stand together against cancer. 

This will be our 5th year walking. I wish Mama could see us even for one moment. I know she would wink at us and come running to join us.

Let’s walk towards a cancer-free future – together.

Please help me, help the Perkins.
