Karen joins our ABC 7 Gibbons 5K Run and 3K Walk in memory of her Dad, pictured above.
“My name is Karen Corbett. Although nobody in my family has been affected by Blood Cancer, it is still important to me to support this cause for I look at Cancer as a whole rather than a specific type. Our family lost my dad rather quickly from Cancer less than a year ago- it was Brain Cancer to be specific. We made promises to him that we couldn’t keep because he deteriorated so quickly. I struggle with the thought of him not getting his wishes fully met- it really makes me sad when I think about it – we tried,we really tried.
My hope is that through events like this that we can raise enough money and awareness to one day eradicate all types of Cancer. Nobody deserve to be afflicted, no family should have to see their loved ones suffer. Cancer should be nothing but a Zodiac sign. We can’t give up till it’s over. I run in memory of my dad Clemence Prusko – he left us way too soon.”
