The most courageous woman I know!

This is my friend Lizbeth. If you're lucky, she was your friend too. Please read on to learn more about this amazing woman.

Lizbeth's brief battle with ovarian cancer was an inspiration to all that knew her. She fought to see the birth of her first grandchild, and on December 14th, baby Olivia came into this world. Four days later, Lizbeth passed on. She was always one to do what she put her mind to.

Lizbeth was loved by her family, her friends, her students that she mentored and loved, and most importantly, her darling. She will be sorely missed, but our special memories of her will never leave us.

I'm not a doctor, and I don't know how to cure cancer, but I am a runner and I do believe in the power of individuals to make big changes in the world. That's why I'm doing the only thing I know how to honor my dear friend. On Saturday, March 16, 2013, I will be running the USA Rock 'N' Roll Marathon in Washington, D.C. in Lizbeth's honor. When I started this journey, I had hoped Lizbeth would be there to see me finish my first marathon. I am now sure that she will be with me every step of the way.

Running 26.2 miles will not be easy, but it's nothing compared to fighting an ugly disease with grace, optimism, and a sense of humor. That is exactly what Lizbeth did every single day.

Before you leave this page and go back to your day, please consider making a donation to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund in honor of Lizbeth, or others that you would like to honor. Early diagnosis saves lives, and there are so many women out there who deserve that chance. 22,280 women in the United States alone will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012, and the more money we raise the closer we get to beating it forever. Let's join together to show love for Lizbeth and the thousands of other women fighting hard every day.

Thank you for all of the love you have already shown for Lizbeth and all of the other brave women who have fought this disease just by visiting this page.

Love, Emily
