Chris' Crusade against Colon Cancer

As some of you may know, my Uncle Chris passed from undiagnosed colon cancer this December, leaving myself as well as my family completely shocked and deeply saddened. Chris was the most loving, passionate, kind-hearted person and left a positive lasting impression on everyone who spent time with him.

I, along with Howard Cohen, will be running the Long Island Half Marathon on May 6th in Chris’s memory. We are hoping to raise money for the Colorectal Cancer Alliance to help other families who are going through a similar experience. If you could please help honor my Uncle’s life and donate to this cause, it would be appreciated more than you know.

Anyone that knew my Uncle Chris knew how passionate he was about theatre and the arts—he devoted his entire life to his passion, no matter how hard of a life it was he loved it. He was incredibly talented and had a thing for all things drama. So to add drama to this all, as Chris would have, if we can raise $2,500 towards this foundation, I will commit to running the Full, 26.2-mile, LI Marathon!

Whether you are donating money or your time and effort, I appreciate ALL contributions of any size and form. PLEASE LEAVE COMMENTS, with or without contributions, so everyone can see the canvas of experiences Chris left behind.
