I Am The 12.5%

October…Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Can you believe that 1 in 8 women (12.5%) will be diagnosed with breast cancer!? Join Nickie, Up and Running, Handful & our panel of local medical experts for an evening of Women’s Health Education on October 25th at Up and Running in Dayton from 6pm -8pm for our Women & Breast Health Event.  We are all affected by cancer, join our discussion! KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. Appetizers, beverages and specials included.

Nickie Luse, Up and Running staff member & professional triathlete, shares her survivor story with us.  Thank you Nickie for your courage to share.

“I was 38 and living in Dayton, when the plan for my life that I had mapped out so meticulously took a radical turn for the unexpected. I was heading into my fourth season as a professional triathlete with my health and fitness dialed, but somehow breast cancer found a way to get a foothold in my body. It was all the more painful and unbelievable because I had lost my mom and grandmother to pancreatic cancer just three years earlier. I didn’t want my family to have to open up those wounds…but cancer doesn’t give us any choice.” Nickie
