My friend Chris

I mentioned a few posts back about a few friends who are dealing with some major medical issues.  One of those people, my friend Chris D. Is battling stage four colon cancer.  I have known Chris for about fifteen years.  We met through a professional organization.  She lives in Atlanta so I don't see her too often.  But, we have lots of things in common.  Chris is a lot of things but "fighter" comes to mind first and foremost.  Another thing she is is an athlete.  Looking at this petite woman you wouldn't really think that.  Among other things she is a marathon runner.  When I am out running, I constantly think about Chris.  She keeps me going when I don't think I can go any longer. I know she is going to beat this cancer, because she is so determined and strong.  although she is probably younger than I am, I want to be her when I grow up.  thanks for keeping me going Chris. You are an inspiration and motivator.
