You just sit there and look at your child and pray for all of this to end soon, and for your child to be just fine. Talia taught us all how to be strong, brave, and to never give up. She always had that beautiful smile...

“As an only child and having my mom as my best friend, I wanted to be there for her every step of the way during her breast cancer treatment.

“If you had told me on March 27, 2016 that in four months I would ride 192 miles on a bike, I would have laughed. I didn’t even own a bike! But just 24 hours later, I knew I wouldn’t miss the Pan-Mass Challenge for the world.”

The 37-year-old mom of two had a 50-50 chance of inheriting the gene, which increases the risk of ovarian and breast cancers, and was likely responsible for the multiple breast cancer diagnoses in her father’s family.
