Team Nancy: Mama Driscoll surrounded by Six Sisters Striding for a Cure
On March 3, 2013, we lost the matriarch of Team Nancy; Mama Driscoll to cancer after being diagnosed in February. No time can prepare you for loss but sudden loss with little time to comprehend what was happening was doubly hard. The loss of our mom's vibrant presence has weakened our hearts but strengthened our resolve to fight even harder. We all need to live better, longer lives. As my sister Tracey wrote, "I never knew what a broken heart was until I lost our mom." I couldn't agree more. It hurts.
Taking pain & heartache and channeling our grief into hope: that is Team Nancy. Team Nancy is made up of family, friends and total strangers who have come together in memory of my sister Nancy and now Mama Driscoll to help fund the research necessary to find that cure and to give patients and their families quality of life. Nancy lived six years with a life altering blood cancer but made the most of every day. She lost her fight in 2009 and has been a constant inspiration on so many fronts.
Team Nancy represents faith, hope, love, perseverance, humility, laughter, joy and the relentless nature to never give up - traits exemplified in mom and Nancy.
Team Nancy's goal is to do what we can, as a collective force, to ensure that cancer becomes part of our past and a word not uttered in the future.
This year, I will race in my 8th Nike Women's Marathon on Oct. 20 with my sister Pam, dear friend Hilary, Gina, Nancy, Karl, Deanna, Becky and Jacki representing Team Nancy as an intergral part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. We are relentless for a cure!
