Meet Team Tell Every Amazing Lady®’s 2024 TCS New York City Marathon Runner, Amy!

Join me in honoring the memory of my beloved aunt by supporting my journey to run the 2024 TCS New York City Marathon in her name.

A true New Yorker, nurse, sister, best friend, aunt, and #1 Mets fan, my Aunt Rene fought a brave battle against ovarian cancer, showcasing resilience and grace every step of the way. Her strength continues to inspire me, and I’m determined to make a difference in the fight against this disease.

Her diagnosis with ovarian cancer came at a pivotal time as she was a frontline worker during COVID-19. In the midst of the pandemic’s chaos, my aunt stood as a beacon of strength and compassion on the front lines of healthcare in bustling New York City. As a dedicated nurse, she fearlessly battled COVID-19, tirelessly caring for the sick and vulnerable. However, amidst her selfless dedication, life threw her an even greater challenge when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Despite facing her own health struggles, she continued to pour her heart and soul into her work, offering comfort and support to her patients. Amidst the uncertainty and pain, her unwavering love for the NY Mets remained a constant source of joy and distraction. Whether she was cheering from her hospital room or discussing the latest game with loved ones, her passion for her favorite team never waned. Her passing on April 25th, 2021 still stings all the hearts she touched. Though she may have left us too soon, her legacy of courage, compassion, and Mets fandom will forever echo all the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know her.

Running the 2024 TCS New York City Marathon in honor of my aunt holds such a deep significance. This will be a powerful way to pay tribute to her strength and resilience, both in her personal fight against the disease and in her dedication as a frontline nurse in NYC, running on the streets that she drove on for years. By taking on this challenge, I am not only commemorating her memory but also raising awareness about ovarian cancer and honoring all those who have been affected by it.

The 2024 TCS New York city Marathon is a symbol of love and community, something that was so important in my Aunt’s life. Crossing the finish line will be a poignant reminder of her spirit and a truly beautiful way to honor my Aunt’s legacy.
