Nadine


Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer to hit women, accounting for a quarter of the cases. More than 20% of these cases could have nonetheless been prevented by being physically active, and maintaining a healthy weight. With early diagnosis, the remission rate is very good. Nadine was lucky enough to have beaten her breast cancer, but with a young son and a new born on your hands, it sure was hard to have nursed such a sickness in yourself, as a mom.

Nadine got through with a little help and support from her family and friends. At last year’s Women’s race, one of Nadine’s close friends had the idea to gather Nadine’s friends and run for her. The wonderful thing is that Nadine, still battling cancer, joined the group of fifty, and they all ran together. Nadine did decided to use proceeds to help out another friend, also battling cancer, but who was less fortunate. Nadine and her friends helped collect ten thousand dollars for that friend.

Nadine survived her breast cancer. She’s taking care of her two young boys, and taking some time off from the family business, until she fully recovers and gets back on her feet. Her passion for Art and photography will soon have her picking up her camera again. In the meantime she enjoys being in front of the camera, and being a #peacerunner in Lebanon, although she secretly admits she’d rather walk… a fast-paced power walk, definitely.
