Grateful for her life, a mother of three recently raised thousands of dollars and completed a half-marathon following the successful removal of a 16-pound tumor from her abdomen.“I want to help eradicate leukemia and lymphoma – I don’t want others to go through what I did,” said Hope Jaramillo. “Participating in the P.F. Chang Rock’n’Roll Marathon was a way for me to express my gratitude. I feel so blessed that I didn’t have to go through chemo and radiation treatments, and I want to help find a cure so no one else has to either.”Jaramillo, 38; her husband of 13 years, Joe; and their three daughters, 10-year-old Taylor, 7-year-old Jordan and 6-year-old Terri traveled together to Phoenix for the Jan. 13 race.“All my family from across the country were there,” Jaramillo said. “It was amazing to see everyone and to have their support. They wore our purple team shirts and surprised me by putting “Hope’s Crew” on the back. All of them were there to cheer me on at the four-mile mark and were waiting for me at the finish line.” Jaramillo ran in honor of her brother Mark Wagner of Seattle, who has leukemia.
