Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
On May 15, 2011, I'm running the Pittsburgh Marathon Relay with 4 other runners in support of raising funds and awareness for Gilda's Club. Please read more about this amazing organization by clincking the link on the left. I'm doing this to ensure the success of this organization so that it can continue to provide a place of social and emotional support to all who have been touched by cancer - all free of charge.
There are so many people in my life who have been touched by cancer. My mother's sister, Roseann, was not much older than I am now when she died from melanoma in 1982. When I hear about a place like Gilda's Club, I think about how comforting it could have been to my aunt and how healing it could have been for those she left behind. I see how my good friend and former client Emily, as she knocks the socks off breast cancer, has been helped by her own strong support system.
And so, I am proud to support Gilda's Club and I hope you will join me!
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
