THE STORY:

On December 25, 2011, our dear friends, the Kavalieros family, lost their eleven year old daughter, Ellie, to a devastating brain tumor called DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma).  This cancer is so rare that it has received a minimal amount of research funding to find a cause, a cure, or even better treatment options.  Survival rates have not improved over the last few decades due to this lack of new research.

The Kavalieros family has been dedicated to the fight against DIPG through their fundraising efforts and their devotion to increase research of this disease.  The tireless work of many medical professionals including Dr. Marc Kieran of Boston's Dana Farber Cancer Institute has greatly impacted the understanding of DIPG and the hopeful advancement of treatment options.

Once a person is touched by cancer the effects for the patient, their family and their friends are impossible to out run.  That is why I, along with my Golf Fights Cancer (a 501(c)3 non-profit organization) team members, are running straight toward it in order to assist in the effort to weaken cancer's' hold so as to eventually win the cancer war.   

100% of the money raised from my running the Boston Marathon goes directly to the Ellie Kavalieros DIPG Research Fund.  I have never had a desire to run a marathon, I suppose because I never had a reason to.  I now have a reason.  Thank you for any support you are able to give me so that I can raise funds for cancer research on your behalf as well as mine.  

Love,

Amy
