CROSSING THE CANYON // NIKE BEDDOW
October 11, 2016 Grand Canyon, AZ
I want to honor the determination and grit of my sister Dana who died of brain cancer in 1998 at the age of 31. I also want to raise critical research dollars to help 3000 Miles to a Cure and ABC2 (Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure) speed new treatments for brain cancer patients.
Crossing the Canyon has special meaning to me because many years ago, when Dana and I were in our early twenties, we made a trip to the Grand Canyon. We only made it to Plateau Point, but promised ourselves that we’d be back again to cross the entire canyon. Sadly, Dana was diagnosed with brain cancer a few years later and that adventure never happened. I want to cross the canyon with Dana in spirit and share her story and the mission of 3000 Miles to a Cure and ABC2 with the world.
