I will be running the Paris Marathon on April 8, 2018, and I have chosen to make my miles more meaningful by raising funds for the Coaches vs. Cancer® program – a collaboration of the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches – while preparing for this once-in-a-lifetime race.
The American Cancer Society has contributed to a 26 percent decline in cancer death rates in the US since the early 1990s. That means they’ve helped save more than 2.3 million lives during that time. As a leader in the fight against cancer, they fund groundbreaking cancer research and provide things like a 24/7 cancer helpline, free lodging near treatment, and free rides to chemo. This progress is only possible with the support of people like you, so please support me with a donation of any amount.
Here's how your donation could make an impact:
$25 - could help one person get free information, support, and access to resources through our 24-hour helpline at 1-800-227-2345 or via live chat at cancer.org
$50 - could help provide patients and caregivers with a free night of lodging when they have to travel for cancer treatment.
$100 - could help one woman attend a workshop to feel more empowered and confident in dealing with appearance-related side effects from treatment.
$500 - could help provide three newly diagnosed cancer patients with a trained navigator to remove barriers and guide them through cancer treatment.
