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.
