Oct 2001 / My nephew Jordan and I were very attached. He was “the thing” I was most afraid of losing. I wrote a children’s book called Jordan’s Big Day because I was afraid I was going to die and he would not remember me in years to come. He was only 3. He is the first of my 7 nieces and nephews and before I married Greg and met my own children. (Jake & Jordan) The only time I did not go for a run during my illness was when I was in the hospital. To feel normal during my runs I had a few custom pieces made with hair, bandannas and/ hair and baseball hats. They worked just fine and I don’t think I look bad in them now.
