I Race for My Grandmother

I race for my Grandmother, Martha Elizabeth (Libby) Warrick, who lost her brave battle with breast cancer just six weeks before I was born.

She was cheerfully optimistic throughout her treatments, and believed that the “silver lining” to having breast cancer was that it allowed her son (my dad) to meet and eventually marry my mom (her radiation therapist providing treatments).

I race so that one day no one will have to lose loved ones to this disease.
