Welcome to My Personal Page!
On Thursday, September 29, I will participate in the Damon Runyon 5K at Yankee Stadium – a unique fundraising run/walk that uses the Stadium as its course. I'll get to explore the concourses and ramps, climb stairs between levels, and take my own victory laps around the warning track that circles the field.
100% of the money I raise will be used by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation to fund innovative research by today's most brilliant young scientists, who are racing to find the causes and cures for all types of cancer.
I am running this year in honor of my husband Steve, who continues his battle with lung cancer. Unfortunately, Steve has failed his immunotherapy course & is now on a fairly new chemotherapy. This is one of the many treatments that the scientists at Damon Runyon have trialed & it is why I will continue to support them. My other honoree is my friend & co-worker MEGAN JOLIN. Megan was recently diagnosed with breast cancer & she starts her chemotherapy journey today. Please keep her in your prayers. Those who know Megan, know she is a wife to Chris, mother to 2 beautiful boys, Matty & Timmy, daughter to Maureen & Phil, sister, aunt, friend & the most amazing pediatric nurse practitioner you will know. I also remember my lifelong friend Joan Ross, my Mom, my mother-in-law Kay, Pat McGuire, Marie Marino, Joann Dalzell, Maryann Fonseca, Jenny Hymel, Paul Rizzo, Ernie Lawlor, Diane Longo, Richard Ramsaier, Ray & Bob McGovern, Eddie Bohn & Janet Wright Giardelli & just this week our Deputy Chief of Police in East Rutherford, Phil Taormina. Also honoring Anthony Ross, Norm Bartlett, Jeannine McEvily Goodfriend, Addie Stallone, Al Lavelle, Connie Vaccarino, Ann Tompkins, Dorothy Hubner, Rosemary Dermody, Suzanne Fonseca, John Wilson, John Barton, Christy Yuhasz, Sharon Routar, Sputnik & Barney. Please make a donation that supports my run/walk.
Six weeks until Hailey, Ella & I run the course at Yankee Stadium. I want to thank everyone who has donated so far; your generosity overwhelms me & I cannot thank you enough.You can choose the amount you want to give – all donations are gratefully received & 100% of your donation goes to finding a cure for ALL types of cancer. Thank you again.
Thank you for your support.
