Please help us reach our goal. No minimum or maximum. EVERY dollar matters!!
This is an event that honors the memory of my son Stephen.
Jason's brother.

Please take a moment to read my heartfelt words...

Every 3 minutes, somewhere in the world a family hears the
devastating words that their child has been diagnosed with cancer.

I was in one of those families. My son Stephen was diagnosed with Leukemia at 16 years old. He fought for three years. He told me, his mother, he didn't want to die. Tears and fear were always beneath the journey. I woke up every morning wishing with all my strength to change places with him. I would do anything to keep my son alive. He was a brave warrior against a cruel enemy who defeated him in the end. Stephen faced it with grace and dignity and love in his heart. At 19 his eyes closed...as I laid next to him in his bed... for the last time. My heart broke. I was devastated. The pain was beyond my capacity as I came to the realization that I would never be the same--That I would never see my son again.

After what seemed to be endless days and nights of crying and emotional despair, I gained the courage to move forward...inspired by my son Jason who needed me had the other half of my heart--Life was worthy as his mother. His heart was broken, too--Brothers could not have been closer. He would live his life without his brother.

Honoring the memory of my beloved son and Jason's brother, Stephen, is an integral part of my life's path. Both Jason and I are participating in an annual event to raise money for other children fighting cancer so they can attend a special summer camp just for them (that Stephen attended and loved). This has become my life long mission. I know Stephen would be proud to be honored in this way, as his compassion for others in his position was always present. he referred to this camp as, "a slice of heaven."

Please join me and Jason as we honor Stephen's memory in 2022. Let us count on you. We need your support.
Your loyalty and love has never faded-- a place in my heart and Jason's for all time.

We will be running in the Miami Half/Marathon with Team Lifeline. Every dollar raised and every mile will place a smile on a very sick child's face.

While running all those miles will be challenging, I am excited to help raise awareness and funds for such an important and worthy cause-
bringing joy to a child struggling with cancer.

My goal is to raise $15,000, but I need your help to meet the goal. Every donation is 100% tax deductible -- no donation is too small or too big. Every donation is met with gratitude and love.
Please join me and Jason in reaching our goal. Fill your pockets with angels!
The families pay for nothing. Every dollar you donate will get another child to Camp Simcha.

Together, we can make a difference. Together we will honor Stephen's memory.

Thank you for your support and compassionate heart...
With love,
Susan
