THE STORY:

Christopher DeAngelis wrote -

October 20, 2013 I will run my first full marathon (Detroit Free Press Marathon 26.2 miles) in honor of my beautiful wife, Lisa Lynn DeAngelis, who passed this year after a heroic battle with breast cancer. My hope is to raise enough funds to start a permanent endowment in her name under the Oakwood Healthcare Foundation charitable umbrella.

During our daily struggles battling cancer while still caring for our family, the love and generosity Lisa and I received from our community is what helped sustain us.  We felt so blessed along the way, this would be our chance to give back what was so generously given. 

This endowment would be a permanent source of charitable giving for those similarly in need.  It would also represent a legacy for our children and the community Lisa cared so deeply about.  

Building on the generous donations given at her funeral, I believe we can do this!  Let's do this together!  You may join our team by running with us, providing a financial gift or offering your love and support.  Either way, I hope to see you all at the finish line and FINISH LISA'S RACE!

Thank you and God bless.

Dr. Chris DeAngelis

This is a beautiful tribute and will help so many people, just as Lisa would have done anyway. She was such a selfless and truly loving individual to all she knew and encountered. We love you Lisa, looking forward to the day when we see eachother again! 5 years ago
