I became involved with T.E.A.L.® six years ago after the passing of my mother due to ovarian cancer. At that moment I didn’t know that an ovarian cancer foundation was located in Brooklyn. I reached out immediately and embraced the message of hope and awareness which has become a message that I share with everyone. Attending meetings, volunteering and supporting T.E.A.L.® made me feel close to my mother’s memory.
This will be my second time running the United Airlines NYC Half for T.E.A.L.®. It’s an honor to represent all those affected by this disease. Running for me can be a challenge at times, but I love running and for me it is a way of de-stressing and having fun!
I wish I had the POWER to end this disease and end the pain that this illness brings. I would like to tell all the AMAZING LADIES out there, that they are not alone in this battle, that we are here to support you, and to care for and love you every step of the way!
This RUN is for my mother, I MISS YOU EVERY SINGLE DAY. I love you so much and I wish that I could embrace you one more time!
You can help Solange reach her fundraising goal for the 2023 United Airlines NYC Half here. All donations go to Tell Every Amazing Lady® and help with the fight against ovarian cancer.
