THE STORY:

  It seems like every day we hear about another person diagnosed with cancer. Through my work with regional businesses that provide life and disability insurance to their employees, I help families face the financial challenges that a cancer diagnosis causes. As you know, cancer doesn’t discriminate. Furthermore, navigating a cancer journey is one of the most difficult efforts of our time. While I help people face cancer’s financial challenges professionally, I write to you in regards to the largest unmet need for cancer patients and their families – their mental health.    


This November, I’ll run the New York City Marathon in support of the Flatwater Foundation, an Austin-based nonprofit organization that provides mental health therapy to cancer patients and their caregivers. Together with good friends CJ and Michael Walsh, we’re part of Team I Hate Cancer, a coalition of young professionals from the Philadelphia area that’s raising $75,000 to expand the Flatwater program to assist Philadelphia-area families facing a cancer diagnosis.   


In addition to my training, I’ve pledged to raise $6,000 for this effort as part of my preparation for the iconic New York Marathon. Understanding the disruption that cancer causes for families in our area, I ask that you help in sponsoring my efforts with a donation. I appreciate your consideration and generosity very much, it will help the people of our area when they need it most.    


Yours in hating cancer,   


Paul
