THE STORY:

As some of you know, I am planning to run the 2017 New York City Marathon on November 5. To my luck, I was selected via the lottery....I know some of you are thinking , you won the lottery but did not receive prize money and have to run 26.2 miles. I agree it sounds crazy! The reason for my email is that as I started training for the race, one of best friends from high school- Eric Augur, started battling Colon Cancer.


At age 42, Eric went to the doctor for a standard physical since it had been 2 years since his last one. He had routine blood work, which showed he was severely anemic. The doctor was concerned and ordered a colonoscopy and an endoscopy. Shortly thereafter, they discovered a cancerous tumor in his descending colon.  As he went in for pre-op scans before surgery, the scans revealed that the cancer had spread into his liver. Eric was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer.  He had to endure 3 months of chemo to shrink the tumors, surgery to remove 40% of his liver and colon, and endured setbacks that resulted in 20 days in the hospital. He is one of the toughest people I know!!!  I am HAPPY to report that at this point he is healthy enough to start his final three month round of chemo to ensure they neutralize all the cancer. His outlook is extremely positive. 


Eric and his family (wife Dana, sons Trevor and Quinn, daughter Elise) are constantly on my mind. I did not think it made much sense to run this race just to finish. I want to honor him and raise money to support the Colon Cancer Foundation. I have run one marathon before (Marine Corp Marathon) in which I ran to support injured Marine "Warriors". This will allow me to run for another injured "Warrior". Please consider donating to this great cause in support of my friend and  to increase awareness of Colon Cancer.
