What inspired you to run for the NPF?
I battled Hereditary Chronic Pancreatitis since age 4 and made the tough decision to undergo a total pancreatectomy islet auto-transplant just before my 21st birthday. I now live a PAIN-FREE life, which is something I never knew until just 3 years ago. I am running for NPF so others who suffer from CP can live pain-free like me!
