CHILDREN and CANCER – Two words that should NEVER go together…Unfortunately, we all know someone affected by this terrible disease. My Dad was the epitome of good health – he never smoked and was in the gym 6 days a week. Cancer doesn’t care. Cancer doesn’t care if you are a little kid or an old person, a father or a mother, a son or a daughter, strong or weak…Cancer can strike anyone and you are never prepared when it does. Cancer just sucks!

My Dad died from cancer about 2 years – he was not yet 65. Our family and friends still feel the void that exists in all of our lives as a result. I can’t even imagine what happens to a family when a CHILD get diagnosed with or G-d for bid dies from this dreaded illness.

This year will be my 7th year fundraising for and running the Miami Half Marathon with Team Lifeline/Chai Lifeline. Let’s partner together to make it the best year yet!

I will be running in memory of my Dad. He was my best friend and I miss him so much! BUT I will also be running for the SURVIVORS and for all of the people that SUPPORT patients and their families going through difficult times dealing with cancer or other illnesses. They are heroes and superstars! That’s where Chai Lifeline fits in!

Chai Lifeline is an amazing organization that provides support to families with kids who have been diagnosed with Cancer and other lifelong illnesses. Chai Lifeline provides relief by providing volunteers for parents who have difficultly leaving their kid’s bedside, but need some time to recharge to be there for their kid. Chai provide toys and gifts and more to the kids – their volunteers really care and make the kids laugh and bring happiness to an otherwise difficult situation. Chai Lifeline also provides big brother and sisters and other support to siblings of the sick child.

Chai’s greatest program is CAMP SIMCHA! Camp Simcha is the most unbelievable place – it is a two-week summer camp experience like no other. Kids who may be in active chemo treatment or who may be suffering from other illnesses, can feel like a kid again. They can have the most awesome summer camp experience all at NO COST to the parents. Don’t take my word for it, check out what some Chai Lifeline kids and families have to say on the videos on this page.

In honor of my Dad who I miss every day and for all the HEROES out there – Let’s make this the best year yet! Please give generously to my campaign!

Thank you for your generosity and for supporting such an amazing organization!

With great appreciation,

Eli
