THE STORY:

I run my first Boston Marathon this year to honor Jennifer Zschokke. Jennifer entered peaceful eternity on December 18, 2015 after a 12.5 year ordeal with breast cancer. She left behind her husband Peter and sons Kyle and Ben who, at 15 and 13, knew their mother under the spell of cancer treatments and ensuing recovery most of their lives. Children should not have to experience the fate of watching their mother struggle and finally her life end. So, when her husband Peter asked whether I knew someone who wanted to run the Boston Marathon in her memory and for ArtBecause, I took only a few minutes to decide I wanted to run.   

Unfortunately everybody has either been affected by or knows someone affected by breast cancer or another form of cancer.  If you'd like, please leave the first name of a loved one in the comment section of your donation form, as it would be my pleasure to run on their behalf as well.

Join me in supporting the Art Because Foundation and their effort to create a breast cancer free world.  Their mission funds research on the environmental causes of breast cancer and educates the public on how prevention can be achieved. Their task requires our support because government funds are not available for this type of research. Experts in breast cancer research agree that there are over 84,000 man-made chemicals in our environment that are the cause.  My mission is a little simpler, run 26.2 miles...in a row. 

Remember, 90% of all men and women diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history with this disease. Jennifer’s family did not have any history. Please support me and Art Because in their effort to find the environmental causes which can lead to prevention of breast cancer.

Thank you!
