An evil monster came and took my Dad away in July 2009. That horrible monster returned in October 2015 and took my beloved Mom. They both should have had more time with their children, and certainly much more time with their cherished grandchildren.
"An individual doesn't get cancer, a family does." In memory of my Mom and Dad, and in support of all families who are afflicted by cancer, I am participating in the Spring Lake 5 in May 2016 which will benefit the Stomp the Monster charity.
STOMP The Monster™ provides financial and other support to cancer patients, their families, and caregivers when they need it most – during their fight with the disease. Learn more about Stomp the Monster - www.stompthemonster.org.

STOMP The Monster is a 501c3 Charitable Organization started by Seth Grumet, a man battling cancer. While training for his second Ironman Triathlon, Seth began to have unusual fatigue and shortness of breath. An hour after his first CT scan, the doctor’s office called and requested to see Seth immediately. On Tuesday, May 18th, 2010 at 11:48am, Seth called his beautiful wife Margie and asked her to drive him to see the doctor. After tests and surgeries to provide viable samples of the tumor growing in his chest, the diagnosis was in; Seth was battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Seth has been through the very difficult diagnosis of cancer, extensive tests, surgeries, chemotherapy and two stem cell transplants. He has been fortunate to have the support of family and friends during this crucial time. But while going through countless treatments and doctor appointments, he met many people in the same situation who unfortunately did not have the same type of support system. Seth quickly became motivated to make a difference in these people’s lives and founded STOMP The Monster. Over the past four years, Stomp the Monster has assisted over 1,500 families with financial needs such as rent, utilities, cable, phone, auto expenses, medical bills, insurance, & child care. They have provided gift cards for groceries and gas and have personally delivered groceries and gifts to patients and their families during the holidays. They are committed to helping patients fill in the gaps so they can focus on STOMPING Their Monster.
