My son, Tim fell in love with Tara a month after she had a double mastectomy; she was 32 years old. In spite of the fact that the cancer metastasized, they got engaged April 2015. Tara had many ups and down; mostly downs. She was a fighter. I’m not sure I’ll ever meet someone as strong as her. Tara and Tim married on February 13th, 2016. It was a simple, yet beautiful wedding in Las Vegas. They were surrounded by immediate family and close friends. Due to her weakened condition, they were not able to go on a honeymoon but came on home the next day. She was hospitalized mid-April. At the end of the month she was sent home with hospice care. Tara passed away on May 19th at the age of 33 at home with the love of her life, Tim. Before she passed, she whispered to Tim to “keep going”. I’m running in honor of the strongest person I’ve known. I too, will KEEP GOING in her name!
