THE STORY:

Running in the New York City Marathon has always been a dream of mine and 2017 is the year I make this dream a reality! When my brother-in-law’s Aunt Carol lost her battle to pancreatic cancer in just three short weeks, it really put things into perspective about how precious, and potentially short, our time is on this earth and how relentless and unforgiving pancreatic cancer truly is.  

In the work I do every day, I have had the great fortune of being a part of clinical research trials where important medicines in oncology have been brought to market; however, there is still a significant amount of work needed to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer research. Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest cancers today and this year, it has surpassed breast cancer, becoming the third leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. In addition, research for pancreatic cancer is incredibly under-funded with only 5% of funds allocated to research by the government. This trend has to change if we are going to beat this disease and it is critical that we raise awareness as a first step. 

As a new mom of two beautiful boys, loved and supported by a wonderful husband and surrounded by amazing family and friends, I realized that life is a gift, meant to be lived and not wasted; because of that, there is no better time than now to run the NYC Marathon for Project Purple! I am running for my mom’s cousin, Ben Newman who courageously fought and lost his battle with pancreatic cancer, leaving behind a beautiful wife and three young daughters; for “Aunt Carol” Iasparro; for your husband, wife, mom, dad, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, son, daughter, grandma, grandpa; and for my two sons, who I hope will live in a world where pancreatic cancer no longer exists. 

Please consider donating to help me reach my goal in honor or in memory of a loved one, and feel free to share this link with your friends to help make a difference!
