It’s that time of the year again when I do fundraising for my favorite charity. This year I celebrate 9 years of being cancer free! I also ran my 6 Marathon, the NYC Marathon with Team for Life! Why I do this is that I love life, I am blessed with good health and of course to help others! Most of you know my son Eric ran his first Half Marathon in Sept. 2013 at the Disney Half with Lazarex’s Team for Life. He had the option to run it on his own this year but after meeting Mike Snyder, one of the patients Lazarex supports, Eric chose to run with the Lazarex Cancer Foundation’s Team for Life again. I couldn’t be happier that he chose to do so. These patients and their fight for life changed his outlook on life therefore he wants to help save their lives.
Lazarex Cancer Foundation’s cause is for end stage cancer patients who want to participate in FDA clinical trials but can't afford the costs of travel and lodging to get to the trial location. Most clinical trials are away from home. That is why they also cover the travel costs for a companion. Patients are fighting for more time, and for their lives. LCF’s mission is to provide resources for cancer patients who’ve been told they have no other options, but who are not yet done with their journey in life and refuse to give up now.
I will be running 4 races total with Team for Life this year bringing awareness to others about what The Lazarex Cancer Foundation is all about and raising money for these VIP’s: “Very Important Patients”. Last year I raised $2500 and with your help I am confident we can raise at least this amount again.
So many people I know are undergoing treatment for various cancers right now. They keep us motivated. Will you help me reach my goal? Any amount is greatly appreciated but maybe you can make a donation in the amount of at least $13.00, $26 or $50. I hope you will help us in this endeavor of ours! I know that together we can make a difference!
