THE STORY:

 

Gary Resnick my dear friend passed away one year ago on May 6th, 2012.  It was at DC Rock and Roll Marathon that we were supposed to meet up We didn't - he wouldn't.  He had lost alot of his hair and was embarrassed and said he looked old. So I never saw him again and this pains me to this day.

 The  I am running Marine Corp Marathon in DC to raise money in his name for our friend, Dino Varelli's foundation called Project Purple which funds PC research and other PC initiatives.

Gary - Dino and I became friends through Pancreatic Cancer. It's the ONLY good thing that Pancreatic Cancer did for us. Since meeting Gary, it seems like I meet more and more people who have loved ones who died of Pancreatic Cancer. 

It deserves more funding than it gets - and we all need to help. There is no cure for PC. It's a slow death sentence. 

Gary's love of running is what kept him going - he and I ran many many races together he would come up to Boston. He finally got to run the Boston Marathon a few years ago. He was amazing- he ran to and from Chemo defying all odds of what chemo is supposed to do to you.

He was the father of 3 children - a husband to Christina and a close friend to many. I miss him dearly and will never forget the impression he made in my life.  A constant thorn in my side when it came to ribbing me about the Red Sox or the Patriots and always looking for me to bet him. He was our adopted Bostonian but a New Yorker at heart. 

Please donate to Team Project Purple on behalf of Gary. Project Purple is a  foundation Gary himself supported -I was blessed to have his friendship for many years.
