My name is Tyler Riccio and I am running this race against pancreatic cancer for someone extremely special in my life.
Frank Martone, or "Uncle Frank" as I like to call him, has been like a second father to me for years. From putting me to work as a young teen, to sharing countless meals together, and to finding the silver lining to every situation, Frank's attitude and compassion has always been a tremendous attribute and speaks volumes to his character as a man, a leader, and a role model. Day in and day out, Frank truly tries to embodies the spirit of youth and is constantly optomistic about life and the beautiful gifts that come with it. Even in the midst of battling pacreatic cancer, Frank's positive outlook, widespread support system, and strong faith is a direct representation of his resilience. As a close friend to Frank, it has been inspiring to watch him overcome this adversity and accept challenges head on, never with an ounce of doubt in his mind. I'm running this race for Frank. For his strength. For his support. Most importantly, for his speedy recovery. Iron Man can not be stopped! You got this, Uncle Frank!
If you would be so kind, please donate and help me reach my personal goal to help raise money to fight and cure pancreatic cancer once and for all!
