August 7, 2016 our lives came crashing down when the doctors found a mass in my Mom's lungs. We waited the longest week of our lives to receive the results that she had Stage 4 lung cancer. Doctors gave her 6-12 months without treatment but she wanted to fight and she wanted to live. That is what she did for the next 5 months - she fought. After a two month stay in the hospital, she decided she wanted to go home knowing this was it. I gave her that wish, and on January 2nd at 3:30pm she came home to see a house full of people that loved her so much - then at 4:09pm she went peacefully.
I know without a doubt that if she were here today, she'd be giving me a check and walking beside me. Instead, she'll be there in spirit cheering us on - so please join today!
I am SO very proud to be her daughter and to call Mary Kephart, my Mom and best friend. Life without her isn't easy, but I promise to try and make an impact like she did. So please, join me in honoring my Mom, Mary Kephart, and bring awareness to lung health.
Please come and walk in her honor and if you aren't able to walk PLEASE DONATE!
