Raised by 46 people in 52 months
I finished my first half marathon on 9/21, which I did for Nora! I am going to continue to raise money for nora as she waits for a liver transplant. All funds raised will go 100% to Nora to help with the medical expenses her family faces. Please join me in supporting Nora and her parents by making a donation! Thank you!

Here is Nora's Story:
Joe and Vanessa Johnston were due to be first time parents at the end of December 2013, however little Nora Rose (AKA 'Noodle') had other plans and arrived 6 weeks early on November 17, 2013. At a routine doctor's visit Nora's doctor felt her liver was inflamed and sent them to Albany Med for further testing. Testing showed that Nora has a sizable mass on her liver. The specialists felt that the best course of action was to start chemotherapy treatments to shrink the tumor before removing it. Nora started her chemotherapy May 5th.

In July, Nora and her parents made a trip to Boston to meet with a transplant team to get Nora on the transplant list. She is considered a 1B - which means, it is urgent considering 1A is the highest. Now Nora and her parents wait for a call from Boston to hear when a liver is available. Once she has the transplant, the family will have about a 3 week stay in Boston. After that, she will need 2 more round of chemo to make sure they get all or any of the tumor left out of little Nora. All donations,thoughts and prayers for Nora and her family are greatly appreciated at this difficult time. You can also show your support by liking Noras page on FB 'Team Nora Noodle'nation and sending them prayers & happy thoughts! Thank you!
