Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
On Saturday, October 25, 2014 the NJ Chapter of the National Cervical Cancer Coalition (NJ-NCCC) will be hosting their 5th Annual Halloween 5k to End Cervical Cancer and promote HPV prevention. The race will start at 10:30am at Just Jakes in Montclair NJ and end there with an awesome after party!

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. This truly is near and dear to my heart as I am a cervical cancer survivor. Being diagnosed at 27 was the hardest day of my life.. I could have never seen this coming and my yearly exam/pap saved me. Early detection is key!!! With no disease, family history, or reasoning behind my cancer it truly came out of no where and turned my world upside down. But with the amazing help of my doctors at The Cancer Institute of New Jersey, and Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in New Brunswick I survived it all. I will be running this race in honor of myself and my main doctor.. Dr. Mira Hellmann. Not only did she save my life, but she treated me like a person.. not just another cancer paitent.
The race is a true sign of how far I've come.. Having never been a runner, running is something that I've found to help me heal, and stay healthy in my first year cancer free. Looking forward to many more races and cancer free years to come.
I really hope you can not only donate, but join me for this event! Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate or run too!
