Running for Ray

My little 6-year-old nephew Ray was diagnosed with cancer less than two weeks ago. As you can imagine, this is a huge shock, and has been followed by an enormous whirlwind of very frightening events. He has had one surgery to remove a grapefruit-sized tumor, and has already started chemotherapy. This is a lot for one little boy's body to handle, not to mention how much it is for one little boy's mind to comprehend. And then there's his momma... And his daddy....

The Ragnar Relay team (a team of 12 runners that cover 182 miles in 28 hours) is running in his honor, raising funds to help pay for his treatments. If you feel inclined to do so, you can read a little more about Ray and make a donation at this link.

We love you, Ray!
