BENEFITING: STOMP THE MONSTER INC
ORGANIZER: STOMP THE MONSTER INC
I met Andi (Grumet) Sawin and her husband Curt swimming at the Summit YMCA during my summers off from college. While Curt pushed me in the pool to become a better swimmer, Andi inspired me to sign up for my first triathlon. Shortly after competing in my first Ironman, I heard devastating news from Andi - her brother Seth had been diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. I followed along with Seth's medical journey as I learned more about Hodgkin's and medical illness during my four years as a medical student.
Now as a fellow in pulmonary and critical care medicine, I see patients and families struggle with illnesses such as cancer on a daily basis. To focus on the most import thing - STOMPING the monster of disease - patients and families need both financial and emotional support to continue carrying forward in their every day lives.
For these reasons, I have decided to run in honor of Stomp the Monster at this year's NYC Marathon. Please consider donating to this incredible organization!
