Story

Hi Tom,

We would love for you to include Tatum in your race this year. She wrote the following bio and she selected a picture from Curefest for you to carry during your race.

"I would be honored to represent a mile in your final race. As you know I've had a long journey these past four years. When I was 10 years old I was very active. I played lacrosse and did cheerleading at school. I started experiencing pain in my left leg and was later diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma. Toward the end of my treatment I was diagnosed with MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndrome) which is a secondary cancer caused by my treatment for Ewing's. Because of that I got a bone marrow transplant in 2017 down at Duke University Hospital. I had a lot of complications recovering from my transplant and was inpatient for over 103 days straight. I'm still dealing with several long term side effects, mainly AVN (avascular necrosis) which causes a lot of pain in my legs and hips. I have difficulty walking and I need to use crutches most of the time. In December, we discovered a stress fracture in my right leg, so I got a plate and 5 screws put in my right leg. I also need a hip replacement for my left hip. I am now 14 and back at school full time. I've ended the past two quarter's with all A's. I am learning American Sign Language in school and I am a girl scout. I wish you luck on your final race and will be cheering you on!"

Thank you for everything that you do! We are so grateful for all of the kindness and support that you have given us over the past 4 years.

-Bob and Nicole Foster
