BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

EVENT: 2017 Amica Newport Marathon

EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017

Kristen Medlicott


"The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS exists to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. We are the voice for all blood cancer patients and we work to ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients." Cancer is something which has been a significant demon my whole life. As someone who has seen how the repercussions of this cancer has affected my own family, I want to do everything in my power to help find a cure for it, and to improve the lives of others who have been affected by this disease. As a future Nurse, I feel that it is my job to protect patients and families, and do whatever I can to help them. It is through this Half-Marathon and through this fundraiser, which I feel will help me to begin this journey, that I will be able to help others. Those affected by cancer go through the unimaginable, a half-marathon is nothing compared to what they experience. Maybe three hours out of my life that I have to run, does not compare to the struggle and pain which these patients and families endure. I am doing this for them, and I am doing this to prove the strength that every person has inside of them, if only they take the time to reach for it.
