As I make this journey towards training for the marathon and raising money for the Sloan Memorial Cancer Center I have heard so many stories from people who have been or are currently affected by this terrible disease. Mothers, Fathers, Aunts, Uncles, good friends . . . . the list goes on and on.
Cancer doesn't discriminate. It touches across all races, all borders, men and women. There is no age limit. It can happen to anyone at any time. This terrible disease has affected my family as well.
When I run on November 2nd I will have the names from all the stories that have been shared written on my arms. As I struggle to run up another hill or take another step it will be a visual reminder for why I am doing what I am doing. It is for each story heard, each heart broken, each life lost that I am running this NYC Marathon. I am doing it for those who cannot and for those who are suffering.
Join me in my fight against Cancer and donate to the Sloan Memorial Kettering Hospital today! Your donation will go towards research and assisting those who are currently fighting. Every dollar is a step towards hope.
