THE STORY:

For my dad...

When I was young I fondly remember watching "8 Simple Rules" - a comedy series about an American family and their teenage daughters. I also vividly remember the shock when I found out that the main actor, John Ritter, passed away after filming one of the episodes for this project. 

Years later, after leaving the wonderful island of Cyprus, and after graduating from the United Kingdom, I find myself moving (yet again) but this time to New York. Where the limits of my comfort zone are constantly stretched by challenging cultural stereotypes and where coping with the unknown tests my resilience. Daily commuting to the World Trade Center, & surrounded by the best in art, fashion, entertainment, and culture. 

And as if moving here wasn't challenging enough, there is another challenge I want to master: running the New York City Marathon. For my dad. The reward will not just be waiting for me at the finish line, but with every mile I'm running. This is a chance to make a real difference but I can't do this alone!

Please consider contributing to my fundraising campaign, and forward this to people who you think may be interested in helping.

Work hard, play hard!
 

 

JOHN RITTER FOUNDATION FOR AORTIC HEALTH  -

The John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health (JRF) is proud to be an official charity of the TCS NYC Marathon to take place on Sunday, November 6, 2016. This is an amazing opportunity to increase awareness of thoracic aortic disease, as well as raise funds to support education and research. We are so honored to have been chosen.

Funds from the marathon will benefit the John Ritter Research Program in Aortic and Vascular Diseases (JRRP) at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) to support research to identify genetic risks for aortic dissections.

“The funds raised by Team Ritter will allow us to continue our genetic research to identify genes or altered DNA that increases an individual’s risk for an acute aortic dissection. By identifying who is at risk, we can prevent the premature deaths due to aortic dissections,” said Dianna Milewicz, M.D., Ph.D., director of UTHealth’s John Ritter Research Program. “It will also help us spread information to both physicians and the public about symptoms and genetic risk factors for aortic dissections, including the fact that this condition can run in families.” Milewicz is also professor and George H. W. Bush Chair in Cardiovascular Research in the Division of Medical Genetics at the UTHealth Medical School.

Individuals interested in joining Team Ritter to run the marathon, help us increase awareness of aortic disease, and fundraise are encouraged to submit an application here.
