Devon Rae Fought Cancer with Grit and Won! Here’s her story.
“I am a brain cancer survivor who has been fighting along-side John Wayne Cancer Foundation doctors for almost three years now. In 2017, I had brain surgery to take out a tumor about the size of a lime. I had a 100% resection, but I lost mobility on the entire left side of my body. It took me about two weeks to learn how to walk again and I will never take my body for granted ever again. Because of a clinical trial, I am healthy now, so now I’m taking this opportunity to encourage everyone to fight back against cancer. And that’s where all of you trail runners can play a part, by running for those who can’t.
I want to thank everyone who participates in the John Wayne Grit Series trail runs. Thank you for funding the urgently needed cancer research that saves lives like mine. Let’s cure cancer together!”
