EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
I am running the Boston marathon this year in honor of the many thousands of people who are diagnosed with brain cancer each year – and one in particular, my friend and brother-in-law, Matt. My goal is to raise money that will help support the efforts of The Paul D. Carlino, Jr. Fund.http://www.facebook.com/PaulDCarlinoJrFund Paul lost his battle with brain cancer but through the efforts of his loving family, his spirit and compassion, this fund was established to help others like Matt and his family continue their fight. Not only is the medical battle to beat brain cancer a tough challenge on its own but all the surrounding costs and logistics present their own set of difficulties. Many families find themselves struggling just to make ends meet because of the financial burden they are left with in fighting this battle.
This fund helps support cancer patients and their families undergoing treatment at South Shore Hospital's Cancer Center. The fund raises money to establish programs for individuals with Brain Cancer undergoing care and treatment, including Financial Aid assistance, transportation to treatment and wheelchair outings. Please support my efforts in raising money to help those in need so they don’t have to worry about where they will find the money to fight their battle with brain cancer but instead put all that energy into winning the battle.
Thank you for your support
