Race Team – Miles for Mendy

jeremy-storyJeremy and Mendy married on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2007. Just two months after they were married, Mendy was diagnosed with breast cancer. After having a bilateral mastectomy, she started chemotherapy and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for 5 years. Shortly after stopping HRT they met with her oncologist for a follow-up appointment and received the devastating news that the cancer had returned – Stage 4.

Jeremy and Mendy have 3 kids ages 12, 16, and 20. April 16th will mark her 10-year battle with breast cancer!  Mendy is the most positive and uplifting person you will meet. She is a fighter!
