THE STORY:

After being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Seth Grumet was fortunate to have the tremendous support of his extended family and network of friends. However, while going through his treatment, he noticed that many of the patients alongside him did not have the same support system. So, he set out to create one. In 2010, Grumet founded “STOMP The Monster,” a non-profit organization that addresses important quality of life issues for patients undergoing cancer treatment. The organization provides financial support through gift cards that can be used for groceries, gas, taxis, utility and rent bills, and, helps with Medigap payments to keep treatment going. These costs that are alongside medical bills, but not covered by insurance, are often the forgotten burden of a medical crisis, and add anxiety and insecurity to an already difficult situation. Grumet says, “All those in treatment with me were the true inspiration to form the foundation. Their strength and determination, shown through the toughest times, are the reasons STM is able to continue to grow.” With the time and energy given by volunteers and the support of donors, STM has distributed more than $1,500,000 to more than 3,200 patients and their families. In 2016 alone they distributed $337,000 to 804 patients. I was privileged to be Seth's physical therapist while he was hospitalized for his second stem cell transplant in 2012. In 2014 I ran the NYC Marathon for the 1st time and raised $6,295 for STM. As I turned 60 this year, I continued to be inspired by Seth's energy, tenacity, generosity and spirit and decided to run again and raise even more funds for this truly awesome cause! Here is a link for a video that provides a closer look at some of the ways that “STOMP The Monster” has made a difference in peoples’ lives. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZHusQP1KmA.
