FAMILY REACH FOUNDATION wrote -
We provide financial relief and heartfelt support to families fighting cancer. When a family member is facing cancer treatment, studies prove that expenses increase while income decreases. Family Reach Foundation helps families with this burden to allow then the psychological strength to focus on treatment.
This year, we have a team of compassionate, determined, and admirable women running the 2012 Boston Marathon in support of our mission:
Carla Tardif: "This is where I'm supposed to write something about myself, but really this ridiculous challenge is not about me at all. It's about the small miracles Family Reach performs every single day and the families we touch who are dealing with the harsh realities of cancer."
CIndy Houle: "The marathon would remain an unfulfilled dream were it not for the vision of Carla Tardiff, her commitment to Family Reach and its impact on families dealing with the harsh realities of cancer. The knowledge that my silly fantasy can touch families that have found themselves living their worst nightmare is what has given wings to my dream."
Marsha Ralls: "Javar and his family give me the most powerful strength I could ever ask for towards my competition in the Boston Marathon and to continue helping gracious admirable people through the Family Reach Foundation. I CAN DO THIS!! WE CAN DO THIS!"
