BENEFITING: Imerman Angels
ORGANIZER: Imerman Angels
EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2014
Hey Everyone! Once again another year has come and I have decided to run the Chicago marathon to help raise funds and awareness for Imerman Angels. This past year I had too many close people in my life directly impacted by cancer and while my mom was my original inspiration for getting involved with this organization, I remain dedicated to the cause and to the commitment to raise awareness so that no one has to face cancer alone.
I hope you will support this cause in any way that you can. The fact that you are reading this means that you care and if you only share this information that is beyond the help that we need. Awareness is key and let's reduce the "stigma" of talking about cancer. Please spread the love.. share and support in any way you can. Forward this as an email, talk about it, post it on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and any other social media pages. One share at a time.. it will be like my marathon run - one step at a time.
And in case you don't know.. here is a bit more about my mom and the reason that Imerman Angels means so much to me..
This year marks 10 years since I lost my mom to lung cancer. She was an amazing lady in so many ways and I am so honored to be her daughter. You see my mom was that angel that comforted every single person that walked into our house. She had this incredible heart that exuded love and had a set of ears that would listen for hours. She gave great hugs and never ever ever ever let me leave the house angry or go to bed mad. We always worked things out or cried things out. She raised 5 kids and she marked her world with one word - LOVE.
Let's help others so that they don't have to miss those special loves and souls in their lives. Please help me fellow angels out there so that we can others!
