Cancer stinks!!

It is my honor to let you know that I am once again participating in the Las Vegas marathon this November, and raising money for the incredible children of Chai Lifeline. This is my third year taking part in this incredible experience, and the fifth year of another milestone in my life. In late August of 2013, cancer stole a chunk of my heart. My wonderful dad, incredible husband, Zaidy extraordinaire lost his endless battle, and I gained a hole in my heart that I doubt will ever be filled again.

Throughout it all, my super Mom was and is as always, the rock of our zany crew. She kept my father going by sheer force of will, love, and incredible devotion. With six kids, and a whole bunch of grands, b'h, my Mom stretches her love to all of us, holding us together in her heart, no matter where she is in the world. I hope one day to be half the role model that she is for me to my own daughters. I am truly blessed to dedicate my run this year to my sweet Dad's memory, and in honor of my mother's incredible strength, love and dedication.

Before I signed up for my first Team Lifeline race, my older brother basically double dutch dared me to go out and run for chai, and i though he was out of his mind. "You can walk it, no one will judge you", and I laughed. Then he hit it home and said "do it for Dad", and it all just made perfect sense.

Training is not easy, but neither is dealing with illness. If the children of Chai Lifeline can fight each day, if they can push themselves to go through hospital stays and treatments, I can do this for them. But I can't do this without your support. I need your help to raise as much money as possible for these kids. So please, push the donate button and help me put smiles on the faces of sick children.

Please, open your hearts and your wallets.

Best - Shoshana
