The 2022 Murph Challenge Day 32: Holly Betker
Today’s dedication is described by her family as, “the best big sister, daughter, and Aunt there is. She is fun and quirky, loves to ride rollercoasters, and gives the biggest hugs. She is the life of any party and the loudest laugh in the room.”
Holly was diagnosed with liver and colon cancer less than two years ago. She had surgery to remove the cancer and part of her liver, but the cancer came back in that area. She is now looking at a terminal diagnosis given around 6 months to live.
Her brother Austin says, “Holly has had some disadvantages in life – including dealing with some very serious cancer – but her light and ability to make people smile is never gone. Her family is so proud of her and very happy that she is feeling like herself for now, having so much fun and doing all the things she loves.”
When asked about his biggest takeaways from all the adversity his sister, Holly, has faced he said, “to be kind to everyone, no matter what. To stay humble and feel gratitude often because your situation could be much more unfair. To spend the time you can with the people you love because you never know when it can run out.”
Every Day We Fight is blessed to dedicate Day 32 of 32 to a fighter that we can all learn from. A fighter that reminds us to laugh more, hug more, and make the ones you love smile. Her name is Holly Betker.
Thank you to my friend Julia for the nomination of her cousin and completing every rep on todays Murph: 32:19
When I did the Murph Challenge for the first time I became hooked. Not because it was fun but because it was painful, challenging, and meaningful.
These 31 challenges are a dedication to a fighter, a warrior, a person battling that’s an everyday hero.
