We stride for Martha Franklin, my mother, who meant so much to so many. She was a wonderful wife, mother, sister, daughter, aunt, and friend! She loved Jesus, her family, her friends, and her church. Always one to extend encouragement, grace, and kindness, she showed strength and poise after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in May of 2013. She never complained or asked "why me?," simply took her journey one day at a time and trusted that God was in control! She passed away 7 months after her diagnosis, in December 2013. We miss her so much every day, but honor her by being a part of this event that raises money and awareness for the illness that took her life.
