Help our friend Erin fight Stage IV cancer

A few weeks ago, our friend Erin Stojan-Ruccolo was diagnosed with widespread Stage IV cancer. The news was a devastating shock to us all. Erin is an energetic mom, wife and runner with a great career, seemingly the last person to be dealt such a terrible blow. What’s worse, a spinal compression fracture has made it difficult for Erin to be an active part of her family.

Erin is now entering treatment and has good prospects, but the time away from work, many doctor’s appointments, and disruption will take obvious toll on the family.  Please help us raise money that Erin’s family can use for child care for two young kids, gas, food and other expenses that are likely to pile up.

Whether you donate or not, we ask that you to also take some time to sit down with your loved ones and tell them how much they mean to you. Life is strange, wonderful and all-too-short for us all, and none of us should go through it without knowing how much we mean to each other.
