Leticia Rousseve

Leticia Rousseve runs in memory of her husband who in November 2014 at the age of 39 was diagnosed with one of the 75+ rare sarcomas, Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor (DSRCT). He valiantly dealt with the cancer for five years with two major surgeries, endless chemotherapy, radiation and immunotherapy. Leticia and James realized early on during James’ journey that there was very little research for DSRCT and other sarcomas. Because of the lack of research and James’ incredible journey and struggle, Leticia decided she would do what she could to raise money and bring awareness of sarcomas to more friends and family. The 2022 Marine Corps Marathon is her third marathon. Says Leticia, “James was my life and my running partner. Being part of this charity, I hope to keep his memory alive now and always and hoping for more successful treatment discoveries for DSRCT and all sarcomas.”
