BENEFITING: PANCREATIC CANCER ACTION NETWORK INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
My father is the most amazing person I know and losing him to cancer has been the most difficult thing I have ever had to endure. I decided to run the NY Marathon for him, to pay tribute to him and to help raise money for an amazing organization, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
Ever since moving to NY I thought it would be such a wonderful experience to run in the NY Marathon and told my father it was something I was interested in doing. He never said I was crazy or that it was too hard he just said, “great!”. Although I don’t always believe I can do something, he always believed I could, and I am running to prove him right.
Part of this tribute is to raise money for PanCan in my fathers name. PanCan is fully committed to providing the most comprehensive set of programs and services to fight Pancreatic Cancer. Their commitment and passion is to advance research, support patients and create hope for anyone facing this difficult disease. I have had the experience of working with and they are truly amazing.
Please join me in honoring my dad, a supportive, positive and wonderful man that taught me you could do anything that you put your mind to.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
