BENEFITING: Livestrong Foundation

Kristine Simmermon

THE STORY:

My name is Kristine Simmermon and this project was set up to raise money for the Livestrong Foundation in honor of my cousin, Tyghe Nielsen, and his battle to dominate cancer. Tyghe is an otherwise very healthy, happy, married father of 3, who at age 34 was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. Tyghe is a both a doctor and a very active individual.

My goal is to raise $5000 by October 16, 2010 when I will be running the Kansas City Marathon in honor of Tyghe and his eminent victory over cancer!

One in four cancer patients or their families said they used up all or most of their savings to pay for treatment, according to a 2006 survey of nearly 1,000 survivors and their families by USA TODAY, the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health.

One in 10 in that survey said they were unable to pay for basic necessities, such as food, heat and housing.

Charities that assist cancer patients say they're straining to keep up with the demand.

Consider donating an amount that is affordable to you and your family to help those families affected by cancer.

All donations will be sent to the Livestrong Foundation in Tyghe's name.

Find our donation page at www.livestrongfortyghe.wisegifter.com and my training/fundraising blog at www.livestrongfortyghe.blogspot.com

Thank you for taking the time to support Tyghe and the Livestrong Foundation!
