THE STORY:

Hello Everybody!

I will be running my first NYC marathon this coming November for this wonderful organization. My dad was diagnosed with stage 4 gastric cancer in June 2016 and put up the hardest fight anyone could ever endure. Unfortunately he lost the war with this horrific disease this past June, but not without the most grace and courage I have ever seen in someone.  He refused to let this disease get him down and has to be one of the strongest human beings I know.  As most of you might know, he introduced me to running because he was one of the most dedicated runners I know, always running around town no matter the weather outside, and despite this setback, he had continued to run and dominated his favorite yearly race, the Garden City Turkey Trot held on Thanksgiving. 


I plan to conquer the NYC marathon by running for this foundation to support my dad and everybody else that has been affected by stomach or esophogeal cancer and hopefully find a cure. Anything and everything whether it is money, prayers, positive thoughts, or love will help in so many ways. 


Stomach and esophageal cancers are among the fastest growing and most underfunded cancers in the world. Although these two cancers take over a million of lives a year, they are both largely ignored by the media. The DeGregorio Family Foundation seeks to promote and facilitate education and collaborative research on the pathogenesis, early diagnosis, and treatment of Upper Gastrointestinal Malignancies. All funds raised go directly to providing grants to innovative researchers. To learn more about DFF please visit their website at www.degregorio.org.
