Miles for Melanie
Court, Coryn and I are attempting another 5K this weekend. This time, however, for a very important cause. My friend, Melanie Kau was diagnosed this past spring with malignant stage 4 lung cancer. Quite a shock to all who know her. Melanie is vivacious, athletic, a marathon runner and full of sunshine.
We got to know each other when we carpooled our daughters (Caitlyn and Keala) to their dance class in Orem. Melanie has always been such an example of goodness. Her husband and children are wonderful. She is facing this challenge with such grace and determination. So many people in our community know and love Melanie and she is receiving many tender mercies. To read more about her journey go here.
