THE STORY:

Jeff Sheftic wrote -

I decided to run the NYC Marathon; therefore in 2015 I qualified for the 2016 race. This was originally a personal goal I set for myself, however it has taken on a much more important and meaningful aspiration. In February of 2016, my mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. To say our family was shaken to the core is an understatement. My mother has been a rock, never letting on about the pain and sickness she feels, always trying to give a smile, always more concerned about my father, her children and her grandkids than her herself. I couldn’t have asked for more caring or supportive parents, and so my 26-mile run (and my determination to achieve this goal) is about them and in particular, her, as well as all the other people and families impacted by cancer. A special thanks to my mother's doctor, Doctor Yu and the team at Sloan Kettering-- you are making a difference. I hope you will join me in supporting the American Cancer Society and all the good work that they do. The link to donate is below. Thanks in advance for your support. It really means a great deal to me. Warmly, Jeff
