Dana Turasky Chicago
Dana and her sister Courtney participated and fundraised in the Chicago 5K to honor their mom who has been living with myeloma for 17 years. The sisters are motivated to fundraise because they have seen first hand what research and clinical trials can do. "The more research that's done gets us that much closer to a cure. I want so much for my mom to have a chance to be cancer free again. She's fighting, and we're racing for a cure." - Dana
