Welcome to My Personal Page!
On Saturday, October 9, 2021 (or whatever day I choose!), I will participate in the Virtual Damon Runyon 5K for Cancer Research. I'll get to run or walk whenever it is convenient for me, while raising funds for innovative cancer research. This past year has been one of the worst years of my life; besides covid & learning how to navigate zoom classes with my granddaughters, I lost my life long friend Joan Campbell Ross to uterine cancer after 3 years of surgeries and chemotherapy that no one should have to endure. My husband Steve finished treatment for tonsil cancer only to find out he also had lung cancer which required a second course of chemotherapy and radiation leaving him with side effects that he is still dealing with. Then, he found a melanoma on his chest requiring surgery & thank God, no further treatment. So as long as my feet will carry me I will run (slowly) in memory of Joan, my mom, Betty; my mother in law, Kay; Patricia McGuire, Marie Marino, Joann Dalzell, Maryann Fonseca, Jenny Hymel, Paul Rizzo, Ernie Lawlor, Richard Ramsaier, Ray & Bob McGovern & Diane Longo. Honoring Steve, Anthony Ross, Connie Vaccarino, Norman Bartlett, Addie Stallone, Rosemary Dermody, Sue Fonseca, Eddie Bohn, Ann Tompkins & Dorothy Hubner.
100% of the money I raise will be used by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation to fund today's most brilliant young scientists who are racing to find the causes and cures for all types of cancer. During these challenging and uncertain times, your support is more critical than ever to helping the Foundation achieve its goals in the fight against cancer.
Please make a donation that supports my run/walk. You can choose the amount you want to give – all donations are gratefully received & there is no amount that is too small.
Thank you in advance for your support.
