Welcome to a great way to kick cancer's ass!
Sep 06, 2016

 

Yes, it's true.  I'm going to run 26.2 miles...in one day. 

 

Why?!?  

 

This is my cousin, Sue Oberholtzer...and some of her grandkids.  

 

Almost seven years ago, Sue was diagnosed with stage four Hodgkins Lymphoma.  

 

Today, she is cured. 

 

I like to think that TNT, the sponsors, and all the runners who ran with me in the Paris Marathon in 2010 were directly involved in her survival.  Of course, there's more to it. Sue is a fighter.  She's positive, funny, loving, giving, and has the best laugh.  She was also surrounded by her amazing husband, family members, and friends throughout her treatments.  And that was clearly important to her.  But, there is something else that was directly involved.  The Leukemia Lymphoma Society.  L.L.S. helped save my cousin (who has a wicked sense of humor).

 

Help me fund treatments that save lives like Sue Oberholtzer every day; like immunotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer.  Yo, that's nuts! Did you know every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these?  I didn't, but now we both know!

 

On November 6th, in honor of Sue Oberholtzer, I will run the NEW YORK CITY MARATHON to ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.  I want to find a cure for everyone.

 

Two HUGE ways to help me kick ass:

 

1. Donate.  Look, it doesn't matter how big or small the donation is...you are still saving lives.  You, sitting right there with your powerful finger...you can help me kick cancer's ass.  Help get us all closer to a world without blood cancers.  

 

2. Share.  If you can't afford to donate anything (call me and I'll buy you a coffee, then you can donate the money you saved to L.L.S.)  Why am I not a presidential candidate? But if you can't spare it right now (or even if you can), then share it.  Copy this webpage and post it on Facebook. Twitter it, Instagram it.  But, get the word out there.  I guarantee you that someone you know, or someone you know knows someone who's affected by a horrible blood cancer.  You have the potential to help so many people. 

 

Patients need these cures and they need your support.  And, so do I.  I can't thank you enough.

 

Ever grateful,

 

Jeff xo
