EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
My aunt Dr. Maria Guerra passed away on August 8, 2011 from pancreatic cancer. She was an oncologist and on the advisory board for immunophotonics. She oversaw human breast cancer trials on behalf of immunophotonics. Unfortunately her work was not complete. I decided to raise money to keep funding her project and keep her research alive.
I decided to run the LA marathon to help raise funds. I am not a runner, nor do I like running. After watching my aunt battle pancreatic cancer and extend her life longer than anyone expected, I saw a warrior. She fought for others and she fought for herself. This is what I have always known about her.
I know the race is right around the corner, but I didn't think I could complete a marathon when I started training 2 months ago.
I hope you can help me keep her research alive.
Please check out www.immunophotonics.com and www.guerraonesource.org for more information about the research and the promise of a cancer free life.
The Guerra One Source Mission
On September 6, 2011, The Guerra One Source became a non-profit organization looking to assist impoverished countries with a toxic-free treatment called Immunotherapy for cancer patients. Our organization has started a team of people working in Lima, Peru. Our mission is to be able to increase room space and patient treatment numbers in this 3rd world country. Our vision is that we can one day have a building dedicated to this cause which would include: organic food service, lodging for the patient and immediate family, peaceful and spiritual environment, fitness room, and immunotherapy treatment rooms.
The majority of these proceeds will go to the maintenance of facilities and also contribute to the renovation to a larger building focused on the philosophy of complete healing according to Dr. Maria Guerra’s vision. The team is continuing the legacy of the late Dr. Guerra by providing equal cancer treatment for the poor.
