This Saturday May 19th I am running my first half marathon to raise money to support a dear friend who is being treated for Inflammatory Breast Cancer.
IBC is a rare form of cancer which spreads quickly and is treated aggressively. My friend, Alex, is receiving very good care in Canada; however, she has also decided to consult a specialist in Philadelphia, since there is no Canadian specialist for IBC. Her insurance does not cover the costs for these consultations so she and her family are paying out of pocket.
I would like to raise $20,000 to help pay for consultation fees, test fees, and travel expenses for Alex. Any amount that you can donate towards this goal would be gratefully received.
If you are in the New York city region and want to come out to the race, the information is here:
The race starts at 7 am and I hope to be in Coney Island around 9:30 am.
Thank you for your support,
