I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer (Neuroendocrine tumor) on November 4, 2015. My journey started about 4 weeks prior with symptoms that led to many tests and ultimately the diagnosis of 'the C word'. While I started my very personal fight against cancer about 9 months ago, I have been blessed along the way...
I am blessed to have access to the best care and specialists in NET cancer. This wonderful team is truly saving my life!
I am blessed to have a wonderful, supportive, loving husband who walks with me through this journey. Dave is my rock.
I am blessed by a God who already knows what is to come and holds me in the palm of His hand throughout the 'peaks and the valleys' of life.
I am blessed by the truly miraculous support system of friends and family that continually lift us up and support me, Dave, Connor and Katie through this challenge.
Now it is time for me to start giving back! The "Run for the Stripes 5k" is a 5k run or 1 mile family walk at the Philadelphia Zoo on November 12th. All of the funds raised go towards research to find a cure specifically for NET cancer. I would love for you to join me and my family in supporting this great event.
There are several options:
1. Join us in the run! Register for the 5k run or 1 mile walk on active.com and be sure to join our team ' Running for a Reason'. http://www.active.com/philadelphia-pa/running/distance-running-races/run-for-the-stripes-5k-2016?int=. Your race entry fee enables you to enjoy the Zoo for the entire day after the race.
2. Support our team through a donation of any amount that will help find a cure for NET cancer.
3. Most importantly, keep us in your prayers as we continue to fight and now, help others in their fight as well.
We understand everyone has personal causes they support, we appreciate your consideration.
Lori & Dave
