Fundraising Honor Roll

On November 6, 2011, my coach, my friend- my dad, passed away from a short and nightmarish battle with a form of liver cancer that progressed unoticed until it was too late and was no longer treatable without doing more harm than good. My dad was only 59 years old.

Cholangiocarcinoma is a very rare bile duct cancer of the liver that occurs in approximately 10-20 per 1 MILLION annually in the Western World. Risk factors are sometimes vague and causal relationship is not fully understood. Unfortunately, treatment options are extremely limited and many are not diagnosed until metastasis occurs and the cancer has spread to other vital organs.

I am running the 2014 Boston Marathon with the Run for Research Team to help change the fate of those infected with liver cancer and other potentially fatal liver diseases through my own time and talent. Alongside my sister, Jeanine, we hope to reach our individual fundraising goals in memory of our dad.

Please help me to reach my fundraising goal to benefit the American Liver Foundation. Any gift, large or small, is very much appreciated. Together, we can help to provide more research for devastating liver diseases, as well as providing education for patients and the general public regarding risk factors.

In memory of someone who always supported us in all of our endeavors, my sister and I will run 26.2 miles for our dad and for all those who are still fighting. 

We still have unfinished business on Boylston Street. Help us finish the race.
