THE STORY:

Friends and Family,

My beautiful, loving, and caring mom was diagnosed in February with stage 4 melanoma skin cancer with metastasis to the lung.  As many of you know this came as a shock to our family and friends.  The news was devastating, but we still remain very hopeful with recent advances in metastatic melanoma treatments and research.  The medical profession is close to finding a cure for advanced melanoma with chemotherapy, immune system therapy, and cell transfer treatments.

To honor my mom's fight against cancer and to help advance the research and treatment of melanoma, I will be running the Orange County Marathon on May 4, 2014 for the Melanoma Research Foundation (http://www.melanoma.org).  You can make a difference and donate to this foundation on my fundraising website:

Please feel free to share this link with your friends and family.

Melanoma is one of the fastest growing cancer's in the world and is the most common form of cancer in young adults.  Cancer is a devastating disease that has affected all of us so please pledge any support that you are able to.

Please keep my mom in your thoughts and prayers.  Thanks for the love and support!

Bryan
