Cancer Better Run!


When someone you love is diagnosed with cancer, you show up. You say yes when they ask. When cancer touches your family, its a chilling reminder that life is short. Having lost both my father-in-law and my aunt to cancer, I know that a cancer sucks. When my friend Karen shared that she had been diagnosed with lymphoma, #teamkaren was born. If Karen asked, the answer was yes.


When Karen asked if I'd run the New York City Marathon, I said Yes.


So on November 5, 2017, we will be showing up in New York to 26.2 miles through Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Manhattan.


Cancer Better Run is about so much more than running a marathon. It's about friendship, it's about fight, and it's about celebrating finishing lines.


Karen told cancer to run, and now it is our turn to run for those still fighting cancer. This race is for Karen as much as it is for my father-in-law and my aunt. It's for everyone who has come a little too close to this ugly disease.


Thank you for supporting us, believing in us, and celebrating with us.





It takes more than one person to make up a team and that’s why I’m asking you to donate to my TNT fundraising page for TNT!


By participating as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) TNT, I am raising funds to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.


Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day; like immnuotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.


Patients need these cures and they need your support.


Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help get us all closer to a world without blood cancers.


Thank you!
