EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am excited to share with you my plan to run the 2016 NYC marathon, as a member of Team Sharsheret.
While I train for the race, I want to tell you about this incredible organization. Put simply, Sharsheret provides invaluable help to women and families affected by breast and ovarian cancer. In areas that are often overlooked, Sharsheret is there. Sharsheret has provided support to a number of my own friends and family members and I am very grateful for all they do. Sharsheret understands that a cancer diagnosis neither begins nor ends with medical treatment, and they work hard to serve the overwhelming non-medical needs of patients, families, and friends.
Sharsheret helps mothers diagnosed with cancer address the needs of their children.
Sharsheret connects women who are undergoing similar treatments so they can share experiences and provide much needed guidance and encouragement to one another.
Sharsheret helps women cope with the cosmetic side effects of cancer treatment.
Sharsheret educates women on how to navigate what can be a daunting financial burden.
Sharsheret is the ultimate support system for those who need it most.
As a member of this incredible Team, I have pledged to raise funds (which I hope to greatly exceed!) in support of Sharsheret’s breast cancer and ovarian cancer programs and services. I urge you to review their website (http://www.sharsheret.org/) and learn more about the amazing work that they do and, if you appreciate the importance of their work, I ask that you please support me in my athletic and fundraising efforts as I take on this challenge (all contributions are tax-deductible).
Thank you, in advance, for your support!
