My family used to have such a close bond and we were all blessed with a caring, supporting, and loving father who would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. But for those of you who dont know, three years ago after a year long battle, a week before my high school graduation we lost my father to non-hidgkins lymphoma and a year before that we lost my grandmother to cancer as well. We are not the only families effected by this; unfortunately a lot of people go through it. So as of March 13th my mother, sister, and I will be participating in a half marathon called celebration for life, and we will be raising money towards funds for cancer patients in several new York counties. 100% of the money raised will go to the cancer patients, so please help us raise our goal amount and make a difference in the lives of patients who have to go through this tragedy.
