THE STORY:

My name is Bailey and I am running the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon in memory of my father, Ronald Newman. I have committed to raising $2,500 for a cause that is very close to my heart, esophageal cancer. In February 2009 my family's world changed when my Dad was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic esophageal cancer. After eighteen months of intense chemotherapy and radiation therapy my Dad lost his battle at only 57 years old. My Dad loved life more than anyone that I've ever known and he fought courageously for my Mom, sister and myself. I want to fight for him by running in his memory and shedding light on this disease. The 26.2 miles I will run on November 6th will be nothing compared to the eighteen month marathon he ran for his girls, but I will be honored to try.

Please support me achieve this goal in any way that you can.

WHY DFF?

Stomach and esophageal cancers are among the fastest growing and most underfunded cancers in the world.  The DeGregorio Family Foundation seeks to promote awareness, facilitate education, and fund research for stomach and esophageal cancer. All funds raised go directly to providing grants to innovative researchers.

DFF was founded in 2006 after a tenth member of Lynn DeGregorio’s family succumbed to stomach cancer and was found to have possessed a rare gene that causes the disease and other common cancers.  Lynn and her surviving sibling, who both tested negative for the gene, created the foundation to raise funds for research on the hereditary and non-hereditary varieties of stomach and esophageal cancer.  Since its inception, the Foundation has made tremendous progress in providing the private support needed to learn more about these cancers, which affect millions of people annually around the globe. 

Each year DFF’s Scientific Advisory Board, comprised of world renowned oncologists and scientists from institutions worldwide, review grant applications and award funds to applicants who are both innovative and will be a catalyst to collaboration.   Each year DFF awards $250,000 in grants to promising researchers and clinical scientists worldwide whose work can make meaningful strides in gastric and esophageal cancer research.
