Just a few weeks ago our family’s world was turned upside down. My mom, Marie Renello, aka prouditaliancook.com was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer. This came as a complete shock to us all. She went from happy and healthy with no symptoms to a few weeks later finding a large tumor in need of aggressive chemotherapy and surgery and she was facing the biggest battle of her life.
After I got over the immediate shock I wanted to find a way to honor my moms fight and help do something for other families who are in the same situation.
I’m proud to have been selected to help raise money for the Dana Farber Cancer Research center. I’m on the Marathon Team and 100% of every penny I raise will go towards innovative cancer research to help find a cure.
My goal is to raise $26,200 which is $1000 for each of the 26.2 miles I will run on April 17th, 2023 at the Boston Marathon.
Please consider supporting this cause with a tax deductible donation. I truly appreciate any donation amount that you can make! No donation is too small!
For those of you that are able to consider being my corporate sponsor please consider sponsoring me for a half mile at $500 or a full mile at $1000.
I’m running this marathon to honor my moms fight and for others battling cancer who can’t run. I will be sending periodic updates throughout this journey to keep you all updated.
