Big huge Thank You

EVENT DATE Apr 17, 2016
A diagnosis of cancer brings fear, despair and an air of inevitability. Some of us have a direct connection to breast cancer while others want to support a great cause.
Kerry and I are running the Women's More/Shape Half NYC Marathon on April 17th 2016. We have created Team Lisa in honor of my amazing sister Lisa and everyone who is affected by cancer. Lisa along with the help of these incredible organizations just finished treatment for triple negative breast cancer.
We'd like your help thanking these organizations and bring hope to others affected by cancer. Plesae support our efforts with your contributions. All funds raised will help support the following three cancer-related organizations.
(1) Gary Kelly Cancer Support Centre: provides a safe and holistic environment for people living with cancer, their family and friends. They offer free counseling, wig and prosthesis service, yoga, tai chi, meditation, information and psychological support for people affected by cancer and those who care for them. Their love and support is invaluable in such a time of uncertainty.
(2) The Drogheda Hospice Home Care Foundation: provide volunteer driver services for cancer patients. They transport and accompany patients to and from their home to their treatment destination. This is often very tiring for patients who are having chemotherapy or radium treatment and may not be feeling well after their treatment. Their generous contribution is invaluable to patients and their families.
(3) The Oncology Department at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital: provide cutting edge care and treatment to patients dealing and living with cancer. The funds raised will help further develop this specialist department to get the adequate equipment it needs to help diagnose breast cancer.
We sincerely thank you for your support and contribution.
The smallest gesture goes a long way towards helping these amazing organizations.
