|Jim Brown - RUN for DORI|
|Posted on Sunday, December 11, 2011 at 4:03 PM|
Dorothy Sawyer Brown of Nashville, TN, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in June 2007. Like so many, life for the Brown family suddenly changed. Dori, as she was fondly addressed by her family and friends, was described as "a light who followed in the footsteps of Christ, loving, genuine, graceful, kind"—a role model to her husband, Jim, of 16 years.
Sadly, at age 43, Dori's determined battle with cancer ended this past June leaving Jim and their two children, Kathryn, 13, and Will, 11, to continue on. As an avid runner, Jim has increased his time on the road the last several years, running in two marathons and 10 half marathons. He says he runs to do something positive for himself—physically and mentally — and to show his children there are positive ways to deal with very difficult circumstances.
Having learned of the Kanzius Foundation during one of the early 60 Minutes broadcasts, Jim decided to SPREAD THE WAVE in Dori's Legacy in a unique way.
"I ran the Cape Cod Marathon to honor my wife, not to mention raise money and awareness for the Kanzius Foundation," Jim states. "I was impressed by the promising words of Dr. Curley during the 60 Minutes segment." In the months leading up to the event, Jim ran 450 miles to prepare for the 26.2 mile race held in Falmouth, Massachusetts.
"I will continue to honor her memory by doing the best I can. The cancer epidemic deserves our full attention." Jim has graciously agreed to host a Kanzius Foundation reception in Nashville to personally and publicly extend appreciation to his family and many supporters who encouraged him in his "Run for Dori."
