BENEFITING: SUPPORTERSIZE INC
EVENT DATE: Aug 20, 2016
On August 20th, 2016 I plan to be on the starting line of the SEA Paddle NYC, a 25-mile Stand-Up Paddle board event circumnavigating Manhattan. A formidable challenge for most people, let alone for a Stage IV lung cancer survivor who is on a mission is to inspire, motivate and empower fellow patients to incorporate exercise in their healing process.
Exercise has been shown through large-scale studies to be associated with significant improvements in both physical and physiological parameters in cancer patients. In light of the evidence that exercise benefits recovery, there is a real unmet need in the market for a trusted, evidence based exercise program, a product of doctor-patient collaboration that both doctors and patients can follow. I am out to answer this need in collaboration with doctors from Harvard and Massachusetts General Hospital.
I will paddle to inspire others to exercise, and as important, to raise money to fund this collaborative research. The money will be used to launch the research which will continue for about 12 month, and will be a foundation for the exercise programs.
Please Support Me — your donation will fund trusted groundbreaking exercise programs to go along traditional cancer treatment.
