This October I get to do something truly extraordinary by playing a part in the fight against cancer, but I need your help to do it! I will be running in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon to raise money for Imerman’s Angels.
Imerman’s Angels (http://www.imermanangels.org/) is a nonprofit organization that provides free, one-on-one support for cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers. The organization partners a cancer patient (fighter) with a Mentor Angel (a person who has beaten the same type of cancer). A Mentor Angel gives the fighter hope because they are living proof that cancer can be beaten.
My goal is to raise at least $1,500. These funds will help Imerman’s Angels hire and train specialists, conduct outreach and build tools and resources that make one-on-one cancer support more effective and efficient.
I have witnessed firsthand the devastating affects the disease has had on people that I love. Both my grandfathers, a great aunt and most recently a close co worker have all fought the disease. I have also seen the power that a support group can provide a fighter and the impact they can make in their lives as they strive to be cancer free. It takes a lot to beat cancer and no one should be doing it alone!
I am excited for this amazing opportunity to run for Imerman’s Angels. It is my hope that you will support me so that we can ensure that all fighters have the necessary support to defeat this terrible disease. I know we will succeed!
A huge heartfelt ‘THANK YOU’ for all of your support!
