BIG 5K is this Saturday!-Thanks for your support!!

Yes SOON I will be a trottin-for a cause!A big shout out to everyone who has supported me and the LA Big 5K! My heartfelt thanks to each of you.
My personal fundraising goal was $100 and to date, I’ve raised nearly $800!! I’m getting close to $1000-to my shock and delight! and with your help, I will make it there!
Today, there are no cures and few effective treatments for carcinoid and related neuroendocrine cancers and the Caring for Carcinoid Foundation is committed to changing this reality. As someone fighting this rare cancer, I am committed to doing my part to make a difference.
The LA Big 5K is just 5days(!) away so please support carcinoid and neuroendocrine cancer research by making a donation today.
Here's the link to my fundraising page: I will be writing all my donors names on my Tshirt-pictures to follow!
Oh and my daughter Kristin will be traveling down from Seattle to run and raise funds too! heres her link
With love and thanks,

Runnin' for Carcinoid Cancer Research!

Yes I am running-well really trotting now-I've done a few 5Ks and now Im going to run for a purpose! Please in no way feel obligated-I love ya anyways but if you'd like to donate I'll write your name on my running shirt PLUS 100% of every dollar you donate goes straight to research for the cure to my rare cancer. Right now Im slated to go on a research trial using a cocktail of two drugs-they are really working hard!

On March 17, I will be running in the LA Big 5K at Dodger Stadium as a member of Team Caring for Carcinoid.
The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation (CFCF) is committed to funding research in pursuit of cures for carcinoid and related neuroendocrine cancers, which is what I am currently battling. Since these are rare cancers, they receive no federal funding for research. This is why raising money for CFCF is so important. Thanks to the generosity of their Board of Directors and corporate sponsors, 100% of the money raised by Team CFCF in the LA Big 5K will support neuroendocrine cancer research at some of the most top institutions in the country, including Cedars Sinai, Stanford, Johns Hopkins, the University of Pennsylvania, and others.
I know there is no shortage of worthy causes and I'd be most grateful for your support in the fight to wipe carcinoid and related neuroendocrine cancers off the map! I’ve set a goal of raising $100 and I've already blown that number out of the water. But I raise more with your support so please make a gift today.
Donating online is fast and is super easy. Just click on this link and follow the directions:
Please join me in supporting research that will one day deliver a cure.( yep-tax deductible!)
With love and appreciation for your support,
