On Saturday, March 7, I will RUN AMUCK with the DUCK in Gainesville, Florida in honor of a very special person, Caren Gorenberg.
Caren is my future mother-in-law. She continues to survive with metastatic lung cancer, due in large part to research funded by the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. This is the sixth year she has tirelessly organized the 5K walk/run in her local community, with the support of her loving family. Her energy and optimism are an inspiration to us all.
Who is the duck, you might ask? Crackers the Duck has accompanied Caren to every hospitalization, chemotherapy session, and oncology visit. He has also traveled extensively, climbed many of the world's tallest mountains, and sailed six of the seven seas, enthusiastically joining many family adventures.
This cause, and the event organizer, are clearly dear to me. My goal is to raise $3000, in order to help CAREN's CREW surpass the team goal of $20,000. I would very much appreciate your kind and generous support.
Funds raised will help connect researchers and physicians worldwide to provide patients with genetic testing, early detection, drug discovery, better treatment options, and patient-focused outcomes.
Any contributions are greatly appreciated, and if you happen to be in Northern Florida, we invite you to join in the celebration!
Wishing you wellness,
