Day 234: Plan to attend Erins 5K Fun Run and Family Festival

I'm posting this in advance and on this blog in hopes to get the word out and to support Erin and her family. I do not know her personally, but her story speaks to everyones heart. It's one of those - 'you cant look away and not help'.

Here's why:


"Erin Pendergast, our 30 year old friend and coworker who was recently diagnosed with a grade IV cancerous brain tumor at 22 weeks pregnant. Shortly after her diagnosis, Erin had surgery to remove the tumor followed by radiation and oral chemotherapy treatments. On August 14th, Erin, husband Ryan, and big brother Ethan (age 3) welcomed a beautiful baby boy, Jayson to t
heir family. Jayson was delivered at 34 weeks so Erin could continue aggressive treatment. Erin has been an inspiration to us all with her continued positive attitude and bright smile. She has been a hero to her family, and someone that deserves great recognition. Come help us bless this family! The run/walk will be followed by a family festival including food, music, bake sale, and lots of carnival activities for the whole family."
