There are not many people I know who have not been affected by cancer. Be it yourself, a parent, spouse, child, sibling, relative, friend or colleague, it seems everyone is touched by this devastating disease. Over the past several years, cancer has affected a numbers of my family and friends. Breast cancer, lung cancer, Prostate cancer and skin cancer have all taken center stage in my life. In 1997, my sister-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer and to help fight that horrible disease, I ran the NYC Marathon as part of Fred's Team. With the help of many, my race raised $11,000 which was donated to Sloan Kettering. I’d like to believe that some of the cures and treatments available today were made possible by the research funded by that money. Please help me this year continue the fight with your generous support. I am looking to raise at least $15,000 for Sloan Kettering. I promise that on November 2nd, 2014 I will do my best to run the strongest NYC Marathon race I can. Please join me by sharing the names of those in your life affected by cancer and I'll put their names on my running jersey along with the names of my family and friends. Send the names to Marathonrob01@aol.com. Let's do this together.
