The Murph Challenge Day 25: Erin Remme
Day 25 of 31 is dedicated to Erin Remme. Erin is a wife and mom of 3 who was diagnosed with Stage 4 Metastatic (incurable) Breast Cancer in September of 2016. This diagnosis meant Erin would always have to be on treatment to try to ‘quiet’ the cancer cells as much as possible and for as long as possible. In January 2019, Erin received the news that the cancer had spread from her bones and liver and she would need to start a weekly IV of chemotherapy.
Erin’s friend and nominator, Anna Burk, had this to say about her:
“There are so many wonderful things you could share about Erin. Her kind heart, her dedication to her kids, her bubbly personality, the list goes on. But the thing that I am truly in awe of was her selflessness and servant heart. While enduring treatment for a terrible disease she organized not one but two giant galas to raise awareness and raise money for Metastatic Breast Cancer. I had no idea what Metavivor was, let alone that it was the only organization dedicated to raising money for Stage IV breast cancer research. In such a challenging time in one’s life, where many would be focused (rightfully) on themself, she was focused on helping others and raised over $700,000 dollars for MBC research. She is an inspiration.”
Erin gained her angel wings a year ago (June of 2020) at the age of 35. Her legacy and fight for a cure continues on through the work she started when she was battling the disease. The Minneapolis Metsquerade, which Erin founded, is a nonprofit that gives 100% of donations for metastatic breast cancer research.
Every Day We Fight is honored to dedicate today’s Murph Challenge to Erin Remme. A woman who will continue to make an impact on those who knew her and those who hear her story. Her fight, her positive outlook, her infectious smile, and her mission to find a cure lives on.
Sending Prayers for a cure and to Erin’s beautiful family (Josh, Carter, Reese, and Harrison).
Day 25 Murph Time: 28:41
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.
