Family & Friends
My mom, Kathy Hoose (or as her family called her - Kathleen-o), was diagnosed with colon cancer at the beginning of 2008. That January she underwent surgery and throughout 2008 she went through chemotherapy. By Thanksgiving the cancer had spread to her liver. My mom is an amazingly strong woman and a fighter- she underwent another surgery, more chemo, and radation and kept fighting. She was able to celebrate her first grandchild Logan's 1st birthday at the beginning of March 2010. Mom put up an amazing fight and I was in awe of her strength, courage, and love for her family during all of it.
My mom died a little over six years ago on March 23rd 2010, less than 2 weeks after her 56th birthday. We miss her every day and wish she was here to see Logan grow and meet her two newest grandchildren- Chloe Kathleen and Nolan James.
We have been running/walking the Dallas Undy Run to fundraise, increase awareness, and to support those fighting Colon Cancer in her honor.
For the 7th year, we will be participating in the Undy 5000 5k in November in Dallas again this year. Three years ago we were the TOP fundraising team and we would love to do the same this year to help support the Colon Cancer Alliance.
As always we appreciate your support, love, and prayers!
The Undy Run/Walk is a 5K created by the Colon Cancer Alliance(CCA) in 2008. We get to run in our undies (boxers!) and help raise money for and awareness about colon cancer. As many of you know, Mom had colon cancer, so this race holds a special place in all of our hearts. We are very excited to do this for her and to help out others who are fighting hard! We are working to gather donations to meet our goals. If you could help support us it would be greatly appreciated!
Your tax-deductible gift will help the CCA with patient support, education, screening, research and much more! Anything you can give would be greatly appreciated by so many people.
