$15,500+ Funds Raised
My father lost his very courageous battle with leukemia on 12/11/2009. To honor his memory, I am again fundraising for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by running the Islamorada Half Marathon on 12/8/19, just a few days shy of the 10th anniversary of my father going to Heaven. This will be my 10th event and 8th half marathon fundraising for LLS.
Approximately every 3 minutes, one person in the US is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Discoveries pioneered from the LLS research and development are leading to breakthroughs in other cancers which benefits other cancer patients as well. In fact, while training for an endurance event to benefit LLS a few years ago, my boyfriend (at the time) was diagnosed with colon cancer. One medication he was given during his 6 months of chemo was a drug that was developed by LLS researchers and it resulted in a very successful outcome.
Please make a donation in support of my fundraising efforts for LLS and help advance the research for the cures of blood and other cancers. No donation is too small. Cancer touches so many lives. Let's work together to try to find a cure. I miss my Dad every day. So please help me to help keep others from missing their loved ones.
Thank you for your continued support, Monica Crowley
