A run to the summit of Mt. Washington in honor of my Mom, please help me raise money for her medical expenses.

I would really love to honor my Mom, her strength, and all that she has been through in the past 3 years. Please sponsor my run to the peak of Mt. Washington that I will be participating in on June 16th of this year. I will be running the auto road of the highest peak in the Northeaset to help her tackle a mountain of medical expenses she has aquired after having 3 major surgeries in the past 3 years and all the trips back and forth to Portland, doctor's visits, tests and medications. She has had 3 stents placed in her arteries to alleviate blockages that came as a total shock to a 50 year old active woman. One artery was almost totally blocked. She then needed a partial hysterectomy after suffering with fibroids for a year.During the hysterectomy they found a tumor on her bladder. After watching the tumor for a year the doctors decided it needed to come out in order to prevent any possible damage to her bladder or kidneys. The tumor was cancerous, but they were able to remove it entirely in a very long and tedious surgery. She is living a very healthy lifestyle and has made the changes necessary to keep her heart and body healthy, but she still has monthly medications to pay for...out of pocket. My Mom is an EMT, truly and exceptionally dedicated to her family, friends and her community! Whenever ANYONE needs help, she is the first to do whatever she can, it's our time to give back to her ! Please sponsor my run up the Mt. Washington auto road that I will be running in honor of her !!! Thank you so much for your support.
