CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -One Cooper River Bridge Run competitor says this race isn’t about winning but about doing something she wasn’t sure she would ever be able to.
Jenn Andrews lost her foot to Sarcoma, a rare and uncurable form of cancer, only a year ago. Now she’s getting ready for her first ever 10k race because she says she refused to let her amputation control her.
The Charlotte woman says that for her, the Cooper River Bridge Run is not just a race, but a way to show that her amputation doesn’t define her.
Andrews’ story began six years ago when she was getting a pedicure while pregnant with her first child. She says the nail tech noticed she has a small bump on her foot and when she went to get it looked at by a doctor they said it wasn’t a big deal.
