Cancer Patient to Do Marathon

An area woman in her fourth battle with cancer is aiming to take part in the Million Dollar Marathon this summer. Angela Freese who has recurrent metastic endometrial cancer is a member of Above and Beyond Cancer, a group based in Des Moines.

Above and Beyond Cancer is aiming to have 160 cancer survivors and supporters take part in a chain of marathons across the United States. Each participant will do a marathon this summer, including Freese, and each will raise $7,500 to be donated to cancer research; making the total money raised $1 million.

In an effort to raise her $7,500, Freese is hosting a 5k in Washington on April 13. For more information or to sign up for the 5k contact Freese on Facebook at Run Ang Run.
