NYC Marathon to Support Tijn's Fight Against Cancer
Team Member: Trevor Mattice
EVENT DATE Nov 06, 2016
At the end of August, our close friend Tijn van de Wiel was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, a rare form of cancer. Tijn received this devastating diagnosis one month before he and the love of his life, Susie Katus, were getting married. Because this form of Lymphoma requires immediate and intensive chemotherapy, their wedding had to be postponed. Tijn currently receives treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering hospital in New York. He is extremely positive and strong. He is a true inspiration to his family and friends. We want to show him how much he is not alone in this fight. Therefore, we are running the New York City Marathon to support his fight against cancer. His treatment is very expensive and every donation will be a huge help. Any funds raised will go directly to his medical expenses.
