I will be running with Team Cancer Sucks in the Big Sur International Marathon 4/26/20
Team Cancer Sucks is an endurance fundraising partner of Lazarex Cancer Foundation. Lazarex improves the outcome of cancer care for advanced stage cancer patients of all ages, with all types of cancer, from all walks of life. We provide assistance to patients for their costs to access cancer treatments through FDA trials nationwide and with identifying clinical trial options.
The funds raised through Team Cancer Sucks will help cover costs for flights, lodging, ground transportation, etc. so that patients can access treatment they otherwise could not afford. Costs for a travel companion are also covered. No other foundation helps cancer patients and families in such a direct way. Learn more at www.lazarex.org.
Since 2007 Lazarex has helped close to 4,500 cancer patients to participate in FDA clinical trials.
Why did I choose this organization?
In 2008 my Dad was diagnosed with colon cancer. I was so scared. My Dad immediately told me, "They caught this early on, and I will fight this. I will get better." Alongside with his doctors, our tribe of family and friends banned together to help him during his treatment. He kicked cancers butt and in 2010 we were told the surgeries and treatments worked! He is now cancer free. This organization means a lot to me because some families aren't as fortunate. They provide funds for those patients and families.
My personal goal is $1,200 but our team goal is $30,000. Help us reach our goal!
