Mama Varg's Team
This will be year 3 of getting the team together in honor of my mom and all those who have and/or are now suffering from brain cancer. This is also the 25th anniversary of the Angels Among Us Run/Walk so we hope you can join us!
For those of you who may not know, my mom suffered a massive stroke in February of 2015 and was subsequently diagnosed with stage IV brain cancer in June 2015. After a courageous fight, she passed on September 1st, 2015. Sara was known for her strength, humor, diligence, kind heart and vivacious laugh. She spent 32 years as a social worker, first for children in foster care and adoption, and then as an advocate for seniors. Giving and caring for others was her mission in life and I hope to continue her work by assisting in the fight against brain cancer! I was blessed to have her as a mother and hope to share her memory with all of you when we run & walk in April!
Some of you may be asking why "Varg" instead of "Vergis". The hilarious story behind the name "Mama Varg" came from my friends/coworkers at Duke who took a funny typo of my last name, ran with it, and it has stuck ever since! A story that never seems to get old...
Thank you for your kind efforts, it is truly appreciated!
