THE STORY:

Happy 2016 All,  

 

As many of you know the last two years have been a very trying time for my family.  However, as we look toward the future,  we are happy to say that since Lydia's surgery in June the outlook is good. She has had scans and blood work that shows she's in remission at the moment and we all couldn't be happier.  To express our deep gratitude,  in April I will be running in my first half marathon as a member of Team Sparrows Nest.  I will be running as a part of their team in Star Wars Half Marathon at Disney World on April 17th, 2016. 

 

Sparrow's Nest is a much needed charitable organization that helped us tremendously during our time of greatest need. Sparrow’s Nest of the Hudson Valley provides two meals, once a week, to the families of caregivers diagnosed with cancer.   For our family, the meals that they provided made the weeks of treatments and nights a lot simpler.  The organization embodies how together by doing just a little, we can all do so much. 

 

I couldn't think of a better way to help other families who are fighting Cancer than by paying it forward  and  participate in this fundraiser in honor of my wife, Lydia. The trials and pain that families go through and the strength they need to face this horrible disease is a small drop in the bucket compared to the training it takes to run.  For me, the training and the running will also help me process the intense emotions of the past few years.  And the money that is raised will help hundreds of other families in their time of greatest need. 

 

With each step I take as I pound the pavement, I look back on the last few years. I can honestly say that the footprints I leave on the ground are the days of yesterday and the footprints in front of me represent the future of my family and our new hope. 

 

None of this would be possible without the help of all of you, my family's greatest support system thoughout this horrific ordeal.    Any contribution that you could make would be greatly appreciated.  No amount is too small.   You can make a donation to support Sparrow's Nest in honor of Lydia by following this link https://www.crowdrise.com/2016SparrowRaceForTheStars/fundraiser/johnbrockhasen  

 

Additionally, I will be sending news of other Team Sparrows fundraising opportunities. 

 

 I wish you peace,  love, health and happiness--this year and always! 

   

 With deepest gratitude on behalf of my family and team Sparrow's Nest, 

 

 John

Star Wars Half Marathon - The Dark Side

April 14-17, 2016, Walt Disney World

Your fundraising efforts will help Sparrow’s Nest expand their services further into New York. Our mission is cooking and delivering meals to the families of moms and caregivers with cancer in many areas of the Hudson Valley. Sparrow’s Nest provides 2 homemade trays of food to our recipients each week. Your thoughtful donation today means the world to a family in need. It means a sick mom or dad can get extra sleep. It means a child can have a healthy meal while mom or dad 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. 

Please support our team and make a tax deductible donation today on this secure website. Donations can also be mailed to:

Sparrow’s Nest Charity, 942 Route 376, Suite 215-216, Wappingers Falls, NY 12590
