Welcome to Cristina's Page
Hello and thank you for visiting my Miles for Moffitt page!
I am participating in this year's Miles for Moffitt 5k in order to not only give back to Moffitt Cancer Center, but to honor all of the people in my life who have suffered from cancer. Unfortunately, cancer has touched my family in a number of ways, and in all generations.
Moffitt Cancer Center has saved the lives of both of my parents. My mom was diagnosed with lymphoma and my dad was diagnosed with skin cancer in 2016, my dad was diagnosed with renal cell cancer in 2017, and my mom was again diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019. I am happy to say that both of my parents are in remission and are living happy and healthy lives. My mom now serves on the Patient and Family Advisory Board at Moffitt, and we recently met with the Research Institute team as a family to share our story and learn more about the research conducted at Moffitt.
I wholeheartedly believe that without the expertise of the Moffitt Cancer Center team and without the privilege of great health insurance, my parents would not be alive today. This is my infinitesimally small way of showing my gratitude and giving back to a team of researchers and health practitioners who are saving lives on a daily basis. Please join me, either by donating to my team (a huge thank you in advance if you do!) or joining my team, the Bull-Dozers, to run or walk the 10k, 5k, or 1k race on November 23rd, 2019.
