THE STORY:

Dear Friends:

 

Recently, I was thrilled to receive an invitation to run the 2014 Boston Marathon on behalf of The Joe Andruzzi Foundation.  The Joe Andruzzi Foundation offers help, hope, and a reason to smile for cancer patients and their families by providing financial and emotional support when it is needed most.

Having watched several family members bravely battle cancer, I—and, sadly, many of you—know first hand how difficult that battle can be for both the patient and his or her family.  And I know how much help, hope and support means during these trying times.  As a result, I am honored and excited to be running on behalf of Team JAF and to assist The Joe Andruzzi Foundation in providing invaluable support to many people so desperately need.

Less than two weeks after receiving the exciting news, my invitation took on particular meaning when I learned that my mother had lung cancer.  I am running in honor of her and her ongoing fight (which she is winning) and my sister, who beat thyroid cancer, and in memory of my aunt, Debbie’s grandfather, and Debbie's grandmothers, all of whom bravely battled cancer during their lives.

I would be honored if you join me in supporting the invaluable work of The Joe Andruzzi Foundation.  As there are many important charities doing excellent work, and many of you have supported my prior efforts to raise funds on behalf of cancer research, I certainly understand if you are unable to support the work of The Joe Andruzzi Foundation.  If, however, you would like to join me and Debbie in supporting The Joe Andruzzi Foundation, we would greatly appreciate your contribution.

Thank you for considering this request.  Best wishes for a happy, safe and healthy new year.
