THE STORY:

Family and Friends,

I am running the NY marathon under the Degregorio Family Foundation in my father's memory. I found the perfect charity to fullfil my goal of running the New York marathon. 100% of the proceeds from DFF goes to research and grants to help find better treatments and a future cure to Esophageal Cancer. 

My dad was born and raised in NY! He's a life long Yankees and Giants fan. In 2015, after having trouble swallowing, losing massive amounts of weight, and vomiting blood, my dad was diagnosed with Stage 3  Esophageal cancer.   His cancer was directly related to acid reflux. After a long fight with this terrible disease, my father passed away Feb. 13, 2017. He was 83. 

EC is a horrible cancer. Imagine seeing your loved one go from 165 lbs to under 100lbs. That's what it was like seeing my father starve to death. EC is a rare cancer with 16,500 new US cases a year, however it is the fastest growing cancer in the US! The 5 year survival rate is low. Usually an EC diagnosis is grimm news. There is no screening for EC. By the time someome seeks medical attention, often times the disease is advanced. Research money for EC is not up to par with the other cancers, therefore awareness is minimal as well. 

Please support my effort in raising money and awareness for Esophageal Cancer.
