More Heroes- Keep them in your prayers!
Sep 17, 2012 by Amy Larriviere

It is with a heavy heart that I keep adding Heroes to my lists. Please continue to pray for all of these Heroes who have fought and won the battle, the warriors who continue to fight cancer and the heroes who have sadly lost their battle with cancer. Keep their families in your prayers too.

Please continue to send my you or your loved ones names as I would love to dedicate the marathon to them in December. We all can use the prayers. Together we will wipe out cancer! THANK YOU for your support. I am overwhelmed with the support I am receiving from family, friends and strangers!
