To my family, friends and supporters:
As many of you know, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June 2020. I struggled with my diagnosis but more so, I struggled with my identity. I searched high and low to find support groups and organizations with thrivers, survivors and current patients with a similar diagnosis, but I had diffculty connecting. On a chilly fall Saturday morning at a bootcamp class on the Art Museum steps, I had connected with CoreFitness and Legacy of Hope, and instantly, I knew I had found my home. Cancer does not discriminate. No cancer patient, nor his or her family should suffer the financial burdens of this disease in addition to the physical, mental and emotional scars cancer causes. Lets give hope, love and support to those who need it the most. Be kind, be generous as we don't know who is suffering around us.
I Run for Those Who Cannot...
The goal is simple: ensure families in Philadelphia with a loved one fighting cancer never go hungry again.
On March 27th, 2022 I am running/walking the Philadelphia Love Half Marathon/7K, and dedicating every mile to ensuring no cancer patients in Philadelphia, or their families, go hungry. Each week families across Philadelphia with a loved one fighting cancer go hungry, and without the Emergency Patient Support Network countless cancer patients in Philadelphia will continue facing hunger. Legacy of Hope created the Emergency Patient Support Network in partnership with Philadelphia hospitals to quickly identify financially disadvantaged Philadelphia cancer patients, and provide emergency support; preventing hunger and homelessness.
I promise to train and race hard, but I need your support. If you are able to, please support me as I train and run in this race. Every dollar helps.
Spread the word: Philadelphia cancer patients and their families do not go hungry!
Legacy of Hope, like most other organizations, has been impacted by the current events, economic downturn, and event cancellations, yet Legacy of Hope refuses to scale back its emergency patient support operations because a resulting loss of life will never be an option.
Over the next few months, we will train, have fun doing what we love, bring our city together, and make some incredible memories along the way. In doing so we’ve been given an awesome opportunity to ensure no family in Philadelphia goes hungry because a loved one is fighting cancer, creating a legacy which will outlive all of us. Our goal for the Love Run 2022 (Philly Runs Free campaign) is $250,000. This will ensure that no family living in Philadelphia goes hungry or loses their home because a loved one has cancer. No elderly parent, or spouse, or child, or cancer patient will have to wonder where their next meal will come from, or will they will live.
