Thank You Everyone!!

On June 2, 2015 my step father, Scott Martingano, passed away four months after receiving a stage four lung cancer diagnosis. In honor of his memory, I will be participating in a Tough Mudder to help raise money for Lung Cancer Alliance.
Lung Cancer Alliance is a nonprofit charity dedicated to empowering those living with lung cancer and providing early detection screening for those at high risk of developing cancer. Screening can help to detect lung cancer at an early stage, the sooner cancer is detected the more likely it is that it will be treatable and possibly cured.
Early detection of cancer can help researchers identify the symptom markers that could be crucial to even earlier detection in the future, increasing people's chance of surviving. Had we known what to look for, Scott would still be alive today. My loss doesn't have to be everyone's loss.
