In memory of Esperanza- Austin Half Marathon Fundraising Page

Elsi Hernandez

Corriendo con Esperanza

Esperanza Morales, known to us as "Mama Pera" was loved by many and truly exemplified empathy and courage. She battled ovarian cancer courageously for 8 long years while also being a loving mother, a nurturing grandma, and a devoted wife. My grandmother inspires me every day to be strong and hardworking. I would like to honor her by bringing awareness to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC).

On February 16th I am running my first half marathon in Austin and would like your help in supporting the NOCC by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends.

My hope is to promote awareness about the severity and deadliness of Ovarian Cancer. I am running to raise funds that can help doctors find a screening test, improve treatment methods, and reduce the re-occurrence rate for Ovarian Cancer. Together we can make a difference.
