Erin Hollis, walking in memory of her mother, Kathleen Conley (2015) and in celebration of her friend Colette Hanna. Early last year, I signed up to participate in R4R to celebrate the completion of my mom’s treatment. Little did we know things would soon take an unexpected turn for the worse.

I realized it was about doing everything possible to live for our 3 little girls and minimize the impact on their lives. I realized that I would rather it be me than them. I realized that there were people with far worse scenarios. And I realized how incredibly lucky I am to have the husband, family and friends that I do.
