Hello everyone,

Thank you for taking the time to visit our page.

My Grandmother was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer when I was just a child in elementary school. After many surgeries and chemo therapy my grandmother was able to overcome and beat cancer. She was in remission for 6 years before Cancer struck our lives once again. I say our lives because we suffered every little bit she did. She was the rock of our family, what kept up together and going.

The day I found out she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and that it was terminal, was the day my life forever changed. I had hope left in me until the day she went into surgery. However when the doctors came out of surgery they said there was no hope, cancer had begun to spread. 4 Months later on December 1, 2001 Pancreatic Cancer claimed her life. We watched her fight, cry, laugh she gave it all she had but cancer was the winner in that battle. She did pass peacefully in her home with her husband, children, grand children and great grandchildren. But the void she has left in our lives has never been filled.

I made a promise to myself that I would participate in a cancer fund in hopes to find a cure and eliminate spreading that massive pain when cancer reigned over our/your lives. So after 10 years of pain and anger I am ready to stand up and fulfill that promise I made so many years ago. My grandmother is just one out of thousands of people who have lost their lives. Please help me find a cure. On September 9, 2012 My team Together we stand and I will be walking 26.2 miles for the Jimmy fund to help raise money for a cure.

Thank You,
Alicia Casado
