BENEFITING: AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY

EVENT: 2011 ING New York City Marathon - $1 Mil a Mile

EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011

Lori Nieves

THE STORY:

I went to the doctor’s office regularly for mammograms and ultrasounds, but it was a year ago I was told that the lump I found was invasive breast cancer.  The news was absolutely devastating.  Until the doctors operate, you don’t know whether you’ll live or die in the immediate future.  And when treatment is completed, your likelihood of survival is only given in percentages.

I believe as hard as it is to hear you have cancer, it’s just as catastrophic for everyone dear to you to know their wife, mom, daughter, sister, and friend is very ill.  The day we told our children was one of the toughest days of my life, and I’m sure theirs too. 

I have undergone a couple of operations and several months of chemotherapy treatments.  I’m on medicine, and I’m involved in a clinical trial for a promising new preventative treatment.  I consider myself one of the “lucky” cancer patients. While the cancer was aggressive it was found early; many patients don’t get a chance to fight.

Throughout treatment, I was fortunate to continue all my activities with minimal downtime; this was possible thanks to the love and support from family and friends.  The only thing I deferred from was running in last year’s NYC marathon as I chose to get rid of the cancer as fast as I could.  Now, I have set the goal to complete this year’s NYC marathon on November 6

One of every two men and one of every three women will develop cancer in their lifetime. Cancer is not kind; infants through seniors are regularly diagnosed with some form of this disease.  Many will die from it.  We all know far too many people affected by Cancer.  This year I’m running the NYC Marathon with my sister, Aimee, in support of the American Cancer Society.  I am raising money to help prevent, fight, and eventually cure all types of cancer.

Please give what you can.

Thank you!!

Lori

Aimee and I had very similar stories last year, because last fall my brother was diagnosed with testicular cancer and this summer my sister-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thank YOU for helping to find a cure for cancer. You are already a hero and this puts you above the rest! Good Luck tomorrow .. I will be thinking about you. Continue to fight with everything you have ... and remember you are a hero to all of us. All my thoughts and prayers, Julie Vilord 6 years ago
