Lynette was diagnosed with brain cancer in 1997.
The first doctor she saw told her she had six months to live. She went to the University of Cincinnatti Cancer Center and with treatments, fought the battle for seven years. Her last battle ended in 2005.
Her determination and will to keep a strong front was an inspiration to me and others she met. I ran the first Head For the Cure race in Frisco, Texas, for my sister, Lynette.
