ORGANIZER: SPARROWS NEST OF THE HUDSON VALLEY INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2015
A little over three years ago my best friend, Nancy Tsoubris, was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. This was like a punch in the stomach. Nancy was always the healthy one - the one who watched what she ate, what she brought into the house and paid attention to her environment. My first though was how can this be happening to her? My second was - if this can happen to Nancy it REALLY can happen to anyone. I challenge you to tell me you do not know somoene right now dealing with cancer. Sadly, it's everywhere. And it could happen to any one of us.
Nancy and I live on opposite sides of the country (New York and California) and this made me feel helpless. Helpless to do anything to make life easier for Nancy and her family. Then I heard about Sparrows Nest. Sparrows Nest is there. Helping and supporting like I wish I could. I can't be there to help on a day to day basis but I can work to raise money so that Sparrows Nest can continue to be there doing what they do best. Sparrows Nest provides health home cooked meals to the families of mother's battling cancer. That's their main goal but in truth they do so much more!
Please consider supporting me as I begin my second year supporting Sparrows Nest by participating in the Disney World 1/2 marathon in November. Your fundraising efforts will help Sparrow’s Nest expand their services further into New York. Your thoughtful donation today means the world to a family in need. It means a sick mom like Nancy can get extra sleep. It means a child can have a healthy meal while mom focuses on getting better. It means a grocery bill can be cut in half while a family’s expenses blow up on copays and out of pocket medical expenses. It means more than you can imagine.
Nancy is bravely battling cancer everyday. The least I can do is run 13.1 miles in her honor. No donation too big or too small!
