Always a runner, completing the Boston Marathon has been a dream for Andrea since she was a little girl. Andrea is pictured here with her mother, Marcia, at the Olentangy Run in Columbus, Ohio, circa 1978.

Today, 9 years after being diagnosed and treated for breast cancer, I find myself in the best shape of my life. Can you believe it? And now I have the opportunity to satisfy a lifelong dream: run the Boston Marathon... As a runner and breast cancer survivor, I am so pleased and proud to run Boston by raising funds on behalf of the Young Survival Coalition. The YSC is a terrific organization that does great things for young women who find themselves in the same scary, life threatening situation I found myself in 9 years ago. The YSC provides much needed support, programming and advocacy for young women with breast cancer because, yes, young women DO get breast cancer... Unlike some other fundraising races, 100% of your contribution goes to the YSC. Please help me raise $2,500 for the YSC to secure a spot in this legendary race... With just a $25 contribution, you will run with me (at least in spirit!) in the 113th Boston Marathon on April 20.
