THE STORY:

I'm back at it again and will be running 26.2 miles in suport of Lazarex Cancer Foundation!  (More info about the Foundation below)

Cancer touches many lives and has touched mine quite significantly.

Therefore, I'm raising funds for another very commendable charity, The Lazerex Cancer Foundation.  As a participant in their Team For Life program, I'm asking for your help by making a donation to my fundraising campaign.  To help offer hope to many late stage cancer patients and make a donation, please use the link below to donate online quickly and securely.  You will receive a confirmation of your donation by email and I will be notified as soon as you make your donation. If your place of employement offers to match your donation, I and the Foundation would very much appreciate you taking the time to go through the steps to make that happen.  :)

I am very commited to keeping my page updated so each of you can keep tabs on my progress.   

Thank you for your consideration.  It means a lot to me. 

Jeff

So, how does your fundraising help our patients? 

Lazarex patients are reimbursed on a regular basis for expenses associated with their clinical trial participation. Patients with advanced stage cancer often cannot pursue clinical trial treatments because of the financial burden of traveling to the research site and the strain of being away from their family's support. For most, a clinical trial is the only treatment option available. These trials could potentially extend a patient's life and lead to cures for many others. 

Lazarex Cancer Foundation matches cancer patients with the right medical studies anywhere in the United States and helps pay for the cost of their participation including (but not limited to) airfare, hotel and diagnostics. No other foundation helps patients and families affected by cancer in such a direct way. You can learn more about Lazarex atwww.lazarex.org.

In 2015 alone, Lazarex provided financial support to 533 patients with advanced stage cancer.  

To put it simply, you're giving Lazarex patients the chance to LIVE!
