Dear Supporters, this year I'm running the NYC Marathon to raise funds in memory of two special people, my father Brian who passed away 20 years ago from cancer and Yvette's sister Carol who also left us 20 years ago from Pulmonary Fibrosis. If you toggle the picture to the left you'll find a nice photo of both of them.
Consequently you have two great charities to either choose from or split your donation that both make a tremendous impact, the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation and the American Cancer Society. For those of you who are not familiar with Pulmonary Fibrosis, it is a condition in which the lung tissue becomes scarred impacting the ability of oxygen to pass to the brain and other organs. There is currently no cure and limited treatment options. The Foundation's mission is to find a cure, promote awareness and provide a compassionate environment for patients.
Donations are tax deductible so go for it!
If you'd like to follow my progress my bib number is 63,494.
Thank You! Steve
