I was honored to run on the ALF Marathon team in 2014, in the spirit of my Dad fighting Liver cancer. I am happy to report that he beat cancer and received a liver transplant in 2014.
My Manager, Mentor and more importantly my Friend Florence is fighting Liver Cancer like superwoman! Let me tell you about Florence; she is the ultimate career woman, can command a leadership room and has the ability to be honest and spread compassion in the hardest of situations. Throughout her months of treatment she has not stopped working, carrying about the people of her organization and family or supporting my career growth and my quest to have a meaningful career and be a committed and enthusiastic working mother. I am always in awe of Florence’s ability to hold strong and speak her mind, but still listen. The amount that I have learned from Florence over the last two years cannot be put into words, the love and respect that I have for her is unsurpassable.
In the spirit of Florence fighting cancer, I am running the 2020 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon on the American Liver Foundationteam to support her on her journey. As she tackles treatments, I will be training and raising money in her honor for the American Liver Foundation.
