Running for Rachel Anne

Meet Rachel Anne. Today, she is a happy, healthy 9-year old. Six years ago, she was experiencing cancer treatment after being diagnosed on her 3rd birthday.

I became friends with Rachel's mom when we were both pregnant with our second children. Both our girls and our boys are the same age, so Rachel's diagnosis hit home with me as well. I watched from afar as this family dealt with things no parent ever wants to think about, much less experience.
