Country Music Half Marathon--For Daddy (Wally Kirby)
Hello friends and family!
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
As most of you know my dad has a rare form of cutaneous lymphoma. Dad was diagnosed almost 5 years ago and has had several surgeries, radiation therapy and chemotherapy to treat this and one other form of cancer. Currently, dad under goes chemo once a week and has responded well thus far. What is most amazing to me is the courage, and the demeanor that dad has shown for the last 5 years. Dad has never once complained about feeling bad or having to go a doctor's appt, or even about the radiation or chemo. I have been so positively influenced by his attitude and have to decided to honor him and raise money for a cure for this disease. I am training for and will finish (even if I crawl over the finish line) the Country Music Half Marathon held on April 28, 2012. I have an ambitious goal of raising $100/mile. I ask that each of you help me in reaching this goal in whatever way you can...small donations add up quickly so no donation is too small! With the help of people like you hopefully one day no one else will have to battle this disease!
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. Your donation is tax deductible and you will receive a confirmation receipt from this website.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
I Love you Daddy!
Thanks so much for your donation! And by the way...Dad doesn't know that I'm doing this so I'm hoping to keep it a surprise until I cross the finish line and am able to hand him a list of the amount I raised in his name.
