In Loving Memory of Jose Segura

Anna Carter

It's difficult to put into words what it was like to lose my father to Stage IV lung cancer that has already metastasized to his brain and bones at time of diagnosis.

Being his primary caregiver was definitely an honor I'm eternally thankful for, and I thank God for giving me the opportunity to be there every step of the way and to care for him the best I knew how.

There's a lot that goes unsaid and unseen regarding the devastating impact cancer has on someone fighting for their lives, and for those having to watch helplessly as their loved one's life literally fade before your eyes.

They say there's always something positive that comes out of something tragic, and working towards a cause is a great way to cope while raising awareness for a great cause.

It may be a small gesture, but in an effort to do my small part and continue to heal from losing such an incredible father to lung cancer, I will be running my first 5K on May 6, 2017 in Dallas in honor of my father, while raising funds for lung cancer research.

If you can't donate, please share!

Would also love to see you there:
When: Saturday, May 6, 2017 @ 7:30 a.m.
Where: Continental Ave Bridge- 109 Continental Ave in Dallas, TX
