THE STORY:

Thank you family and friends for coming to this page.  

Many of you know my mom and I well... and in knowing us as well as you do, you know we have never been “runners”, so to speak.  After losing two very dear family members this past year to cancer we have decided to strap on our running shoes and complete the Baton Rouge Half Marathon on December 7th, raising money to donate to The Cancer Research Institute in their honor.


Below, we want to tell you a little more about our loved ones, David Huval and William Friedman, Sr.

William Friedman, my Grandfather, passed away at the age of 78 from lung cancer on January 31,2013.  He lived a beautiful life, was married for 59 years with 6 children, 9 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren.   With this big family it’s safe to say he had a lot of love and support throughout his life especially leading up to his final days.  We miss him everyday but know he’s still up there watching us!


David Huval, my Uncle/Godfather/Friend passed away at the age of 54 from prostate cancer on May 6, 2013.  Although he was diagnosed at the young age of 42 , he didn’t let that stop him from living life to the fullest.  He was an amazing uncle, sibling, son, and friend to everyone that was lucky enough to get to know him.  Always the life of the party with his dry sense of humor.  He truly had a heart of gold and lived to make those around him happy.  He is missed by all of us each and every day.

The Charity:

We are hoping to raise $1,500 to donate to The Cancer Research Institute in their honor to support the continued research to end the fight against cancer.  


Founded in 1953, The Cancer Research Institute has been a leading and sustaining force in immunology and cancer immunology research worldwide.  Their goal is to discover and develop new, immune-based approaches to the treatment, control, and prevention of cancer. The Institute fulfills its mission by providing academic researchers at top institutions around the world the funding they need to carry out their important work.

 

Please help support with any donation you can.  We truly appreciate it!
