Why I fight?
I'm going to be honest...the idea of stepping into the ring was (and still is) petrifying. I'm training like hell, pushing myself to physical limits I didn't think my 34yr old body could manage and retesting what it means to be dedicated. I say all this to say something that's very obvious: this is nothing to those battling cancer.
My family, like millions of others, has been afflicted with this brutal disease. I've lost both of my grandparents on my fathers side (Charlotte and William Henry Davis) and my grandmother on my mother's side to cancer. Recently, I watched my first cousin overcome a double mastectomy with grace, determination, and spirit. I'm not alone in hoping we find a cure to cancer and this is one small contribution to the work being done by many others.
Come see me get punched in the face on November 14 and let's knock out cancer together.
