THE STORY:

Hello!

This September something pretty remarkable will happen.  Kevin will be running in his first half marathon.  Kevin is a cancer survivor who beat Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

But wait, this particular run is even more special to both of us!  We purposely chose the Disneyland Half Marathon because we will be traveling to California to memorialize Kim's brother who fought stage 4 lung cancer for 18 months before being called home in April.  Bud showed dignity and strength during his fight by continuing to love on other's before himself.  He was a great example of loving others as Jesus first loved us.

We decided to partner with the LAZAREX CANCER FOUNDATION to support other cancer patients who are still fighting the fight.  We are running for all OUR other BUD'S who are fighting cancer!

Unfortunately, we know all to well the importance of resources such as those which Lazarex provides.  Kim has lost 4 close family members to various types of cancer and has a sister who recently had a total mastectomy to beat cancer.  We also have a brother-in-law who is winning his stage 4 throat and lung cancer battle.  Both he and Kim's sister Dawn amaze us every day as they stay focused on showing their hearts for God throughout the good and bad days.

Through all of our experiences we have realized that there is something to be learned during every journey.  This is the GOOD to be pulled from the experience and is what should be paid forward to others. Lazarex is doing just that.

Lazarex Cancer Foundation builds a bridge to hope, dignity and life for cancer patients and their families. Specifically Lazarex helps patients who have received a final diagnosis of 'terminal' or 'end stage' cancer.  Lazarex doesn't believe anyone should be told when they should stop fighting for life.   Families can be provided financial assistance to defray the costs associated with patient participation in FDA clinical trials. Additionally, patients can be assisted with identifying their clinical trial options and provided community education and outreach services.

Kim's sister Sharon's motto in life was 'never, never, NEVER give up!' and we are proud to partner with a foundation that believes in that same message.

Thank you for joining us in raising funds to help increase resources for Lazarex families.

Love and blessings,

Kevin and Kim
