Fu&k Cancer! I couldn’t save my mom, but maybe I can help save yours
Mother’s Day is this Sunday May 8th. This is my 9th Mother’s Day without my mom. This is my 9th EVERYTHING without my mom. This September 29th she will have been gone for 10 years.
This year I am honoring my mother, and joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in the Head for the Cure 5k in San Antonio, TX on Saturday September 24, 2016.
Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. I lost my mother to an aggressive metastatic brain tumor in 2006, and raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research may just help save someone else’s mother.
For momma I am calling my team “Team Susan Sundy” I want everyone to hear her name, see her name, and know that she may be gone, but she is far from forgotten. That one day some brilliant researcher will find a cure for what took her, and that eventually no one will have to see what I have seen…. Lost what I, and so many others, have lost.
Each year, over 200,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or a metastatic brain tumor. More than 120 types of brain tumors exist, making effective treatment complicated.
Head for the Cure works to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their friends, families, caregivers, and other supporters by celebrating their courage, spirit, and energy.

I end this blog by giving my 9th annual Mother’s Day plea.
If your mom is still alive…..
PLEASE call her, go see her, communicate with her in any way that you can. I would give anything if I could.
PLEASE do not let previous arguments, disagreements, or annoyances stop you from reaching out to her.
PLEASE hug her, tell her you love her, and spend as much time with her as you can.
PLEASE do not take for granted what I would give everything- do anything for.
Happy Mother’s Day my friends.
