Following a cancer diagnosis, finding the strength to just keep running

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month (and of Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month, which was in September), we'll be publishing a series of videos featuring patients who have survived a diagnosis of ovarian or breast cancer after treatment at the Stanford Women's Cancer Center. From writing, to running, to riding or just slowing down and paying it forward, these four women found the strength to move through and beyond their disease, and they'll share their stories in this month-long series.

This week we feature the story of Mollie Jarret, a retired school teacher and grandmother whose initial fear after a diagnosis of ovarian cancer turned to resolve when she decided to continue embracing the things she loved to do, like running -- no matter the weather, her diagnosis or her mood.
