Our cousin Steve Reisenfeld was diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma. He has endured surgeries, several rounds of chemo, radiation and everything that comes with this disease. He fights everyday. If he is tired, he fights. If he is sick, he fights. If he is in pain, he fights.
We fight along side him. We have joined together as a family to raise money for Melanoma Know More. This organization is based in Cincinnati and has been very supportive of Steve. Melanoma Know More focuses on prevention, treatment, research and support.
We are participating in The Flying Pig race weekend, we have cousins in the half-marathon, 5k, kids fun run and diaper dash events. Steve is our motivation and inspiration; he pushes himself everyday. We want to support him during his marathon with melanoma.
We are inviting anyone, to be an "honorary" cousin. Come out and run/walk/cheer with us. If you support Steve, you are already a member of our extended family. Let's stick together and raise some money for an organization that helps so many. If you would like to join us, register for your race through The Flying Pig and let Betsy (Steve's Cousin) know you will be attending at firstname.lastname@example.org
Maybe, just maybe we can bring strength and hope to the next cousin, brother, nephew, son or friend that is diagnosed with this terrible disease.
