Dear Family and Friends,
Me again. Last year I ran my first (and I swore my last!) Boston marathon. I ran for a charity called Golf Fights Cancer. Yes I don’t golf but what makes this wonderful group unique is that they donate all the money one raises to whatever cancer related charity the runner wishes to support.
Through your generosity, I raised $25K for patients to afford DIgniCaps during chemotherapy. DigniCaps allow a person to receive chemotherapy and not lose their hair. Thanks to great friends and ice caps, I was able to keep my hair when I received chemo in 2016. Unbelievably, the average cost of the DigniCaps is ~$500 per treatment and is not currently covered by health insurance.
The money you helped raise last year meant the difference between a person looking in the mirror and seeing a bald, sick person or seeing themselves.
In case you followed the Boston marathon last year, the weather was awful—driving rain, cold, and wind in your face. There was a record number of “do not finishes”. For those that know me, you knew that wind and rain wasn’t keeping me from crossing that finish line. I can promise you that no matter what the circumstances, I will finish the marathon.
I hope you will help support this cause.
All my love and appreciation,
