I am Jesse Dill and I am participating in the miles4melanoma 5k in honor of my wife Adrienne Dill who was diagnosed with melanoma on April 15th 2013. Adrienne and I were married March 30th of 2012 in Savannah GA at Forsyth Park. I truly never thought that beautiful day in March when we were at an absolute high, that merely a year later we would hit our absolute low with her diagnosis. It still boggles my mind and confuses me to the point of exhaustion. My wife, best friend, and Love, lost her battle Dec. 13th 2013, an unrealistic 8 months after being diagnosed.
Adrienne had an unbelievable love and gift for children, and we had many in our lives. Unfortunately, Adrienne and I waited a little too long before having children of our own, as we had planned to try at the beginning of 2014. This is a picture of Adrienne and I holding our precious Goddaughter Stella. She is missed but never forgotten by all these children and loved ones whose lives have been impacted by her.
