Lorraine Cademartori's Fundraiser:

Outrunning Pediatric Cancer

THE STORY:

On November 4, I will be participating in the ING New York City Marathon. It is my first—and given the state of my knees, likely my only—marathon, and I am hoping to make it especially memorable by running it on behalf of children with cancer.

There are two organizations to which I hope you considering donating. One is MANITOS (Spanish for "little hands"), which helps fund the purchase of medicine and other equipment for young cancer patients in the desperately poor nation of Paraguay, and specifically its Instituto Nacional del Cancer. Manitos was founded by Richard and Claire Nalley of Brooklyn, who lost their four-year-old daughter, Emily, to complications of lymphoma in 2006. To read more about Manitos and the Nalleys' devotion to Paraguay, visit manitosparaguay.com. To donate, click the link ABOVE.

The other organization is the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation, which funds research into pediatric cancers. Some of you may be recently familiar with five-year-old Ty, who died from an extrarenal rhabdoid tumor, via the extraordinary blog superty.org, or his Facebook page. I encourage you to visit either. You can donate to TLC via my Crowdrise page, crowdrise.com/lorrainecademartori 

Together, these two charities are a two-pronged attack on cancer: helping to treat those who need it the most, and helping to at last find a cure. Please help me honor the lives of these children by contributing what you can to destroy this damnable disease.
