Racing for Loved Ones: In Memory of Mama Driscoll & Sister Nancy
May 01, 2013
Mom could brighten any room.
Her heart was filled with faith, hope and so much love for all!
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. 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 in a recent note, "I never knew what a broken heart was until I lost our mom". I couldn't agree more. It hurts.
Taking pain and heartache and channeling our grief: Team Nancy is made up of family, friends and total strangers who continue to come together in honor of our sister Nancy when diagnosed with cancer in 2003 by raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society 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 see that cancer becomes part of our past and a word not uttered in the future. Team Nancy will participate in the Nike Women's Marathon on Oct. 20 as an intergral part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. We are relentless for a cure!
We open our arms and invite you to be a part of Team Nancy. Join us in San Francisco or make your donation today in memory of Mama Driscoll, Nancy and for all of our loved ones.
Someday we will find that cure. Someday is today!
With heartfelt thanks,
Sister Nancy Driscoll
There is no finish line until we reach that cure!
