THE STORY:

I just signed up for the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon!

Not only will I be training like crazy for my run, but more importantly, I’m going to leverage all that training and hard work to help raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).

I’m reaching out to everyone I know to help me raise $3,000 for this cause. Any amount you can give is so appreciated.

I know some of you have already donated in lieu of flowers at her funeral, but if you can please help in any way by forwarding on to others, I'd appreciate it. It’ll only take you a couple minutes. Here’s some background on why I chose to run with Team BCRF:

My mom, Ligoria Artates Fernandez, passed away from breast cancer just this past March 8th. She was placed in a drug trial soon after her diagnoses in 2002 and continued to receive treatments until October 2016. At that time, her doctors stopped treatment believing that they were no longer of value to her. Without her drug trial, my mom would not have lived this long – 15 years. BCRF is very highly rated and 91% of donations received is committed to tackling this disease by investing in research. That means more answers, faster breakthroughs and treatment personalized for every patient.

By running the NY City Marathon with Team BCRF, I hope to honor my mom’s courage and will to survive.

Thanks so much for your support.

Darlene

Message from BCRF:
Our BCRF marathon team is diverse—we are breast cancer patients, survivors, family members, employees, supporters, allies, professionals, runners, non-runners, and even researchers. But what we have in common is one thing: the desire and dedication to do our part to help bring about a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime. For over 20 years, BCRF-funded researchers have been at the forefront of nearly every significant breakthrough in understanding, preventing and treating the disease. We know that the answers continue to lie in science, and that the only thing standing in the way is research funding. With your help, together we can accelerate progress and achieve a world without breast cancer.
