In memory of Steve Lee
I am starting this campaign to fight against colon cancer. On Oct 4 2015, I ran a half-marathon in Princeton NJ. On Oct 25 2015, I will be running the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC.
Steve Lee was my father-in-law and the kindest person I know. He was diagnosed of colon cancer two years ago and had sadly passed away this year. He was 61.
He was diagnosed of the cancer at a late stage, when the treatment options were limited. Nevertheless, he benefited significantly from newly developed drugs thanks to the cutting edge research in this area. Even though he was fighting a tough battle, Steve kept his fighting spirit till the end and never lost his sense of humor.
All proceeds will be donated to charities and non-profit organizations that support colon cancer research and raise awareness.
