I am running my first marathon in Philadelphia this November. I am running the Philadelphia Marathon for women with cancer and will be raising funds for the Barnett-Searing National Cancer Foundation (BSNCF). I work with John Searing, one of the founders of the foundation, and have seen first hand the great work they do. I have seen a dear friend battle cancer and survive, and I want to do something to help brave ladies like her with their fight.
Funds raised will support BSNCF’s “Smile Kits” initiative to female cancer patients and their families. Many of these patients are in the fight of their lives enduring radiation, chemotherapy, and or surgery to battle the disease. The mission of The Barnett-Searing National Cancer Foundation is to support women of all ages affected by cancer, and the loved ones who care for them by providing unexpected acts of kindness through a variety of projects which offer comfort.
