I am proud to be participating in the 2018 Chicago Marathon in support of the Jack H. Marston Melanoma fund. I borrowed the following definition from the Mayo clinic website.
Melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer, develops in the cells (melanocytes) that produce melanin — the pigment that gives your skin its color. Melanoma can also form in your eyes and, rarely, in internal organs, such as your intestines.
I knew Jack Marston from Crete Monee high school where we played football together. I will always remember that Jack was one of the good guys and I am proud to have known him. I know that he is missed by his family and friends which makes this organization so important to helping others afflicted with this disease.
Please donate if you are able to spare a few dollars to help support Jacks Fund and fight this horrible disease.
