THE STORY:

I am honored to have been selected to represent the Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF) Boston Marathon Team again in 2013.  The origins of my interest in JAF began with my profile picture, taken in 2010 – it is the last time I will ever have a sunburn.  Later that December I was diagnosed with melanoma.   I have also lost 2 friends and a work colleague to cancer just this past year.  As well, several other family members and friends in recent years are in remission having recently battled the disease.  And it doesn’t stop there - if you haven’t been impacted by cancer in some way yet, you will.  I promise you. Therefore, this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart, as Joe and I are both cancer survivors hoping to make a difference in people's lives.  JAF is an amazing foundation that helps raise money for pediatric cancer research.  The foundation also financially supports families while they are undergoing treatment (helps pay mortgage, bills, etc) so they can focus on getting well.  

So help me kick cancer’s a$$...my personal fundraising goal is $5000, and I am asking you to help…now.  For those of you who donated last year, and proceeded to watch me hallucinate my way through 26.2 miles in 90 degree heat with a mesh tank top tied around my head, THANK YOU!!!  With your help, I was the top fundraiser for the JAF marathon team – your contributions helped over 11 families with members battling cancer make their mortgage payments, something we should all be extremely proud of.
