At the end of March I will be running in the Philly Love Run 1/2 Marathon. I'm running in honor of my mom, who is a Lymphoma survivor, and in memory of her best friend, Janet, who recently passed away from breast cancer.
Their strength and resilence through their battles with cancer were nothing short of inspiring.
Even more inspiring is their fifty-seven year friendship that was built on love, support, and respect.
My goal is to raise $500 forLegacy of Hope. This organization provides financial support to families battling cancer by paying mortage/rent, utilities, transportation, clothing, and food. Will you help me to meet my goal?
"Let there be no doubt that every step you take, every mile you run, every dollar you raise will make a difference in the lives of cancer patients in Philadelphia."
“We must strive not for what has already been accomplished or that which seems easily attainable, rather we must imagine the world when our loved ones never again hear the words “you have cancer“, and then reach for this with unwavering resolve.“
