I race each year in the race for the Cure, because my mom Joy Goff was dignosed with breast cancer in Oct. 2002, when i was just 12yrs old. It may be weird, but i didnt want to lose my mom. She was all i had pretty much. With my mom being a survior for 7yrs now, I try to walk the race, in honor of her, and be with her in the time that she needs me most. Its our mother/daughter time together.. Plus, now i do it also for one of my high school teachers that is not able to walk each year, but i do it in honor of her. Mrs. Stephanie Shachmut.
