Jill's Legacy - Chicago Marathon 2013

THE STORY:

When I ran my first full-distance marathon last fall in Philly, I could hear Jill’s voice in my head when my legs felt like lead and my body ached. I could hear her pushing me and cheering me on over the 26.2 miles, as she did for four years as my coxswain on our high school rowing team. Jill passed on from this world three years ago from stage IV lung cancer, and in October I will be running the Chicago marathon to honor Jill and carry on her mission to “BEAT LUNG CANCER” by raising funds for Jill’s Legacy and the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. Jill wanted more than just to beat this disease for herself; she wanted to beat it for the 1.5 million individuals who die each year from this disease worldwide.

Jill gave us a wake-up call; she showed us that ANYONE can get lung cancer, and NO ONE deserves it. With the funds I am raising, Jill’s Legacy and the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation are working to eradicate lung cancer and improve the 15.5% survival rate through research, awareness, education, early detection and treatment. You can learn more about the incredible work the Foundation is doing on their website (http://www.lungcancerfoundation.org/) or feel free to ask me about how we are continuing Jill’s work through Jill’s Legacy!

Your support means so much to me and to those who loved Jill; it also will enable Jill’s Legacy and the Bonnie J Addario Lung Cancer Foundation to support patients; fund cutting-edge, life-saving research; and raise public awareness about the world’s number one cancer killer.

Thank you for your support! Remember: every dollar counts!! 
 

With love,
Sami
