Hope to move beyond my goal...every dollar helps place a smile on a sick child's face!!
Pleases join me and Jason as we honor the memory of Stephen...my son and his brother.
You may already know that I’m training to run the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Marathon this November with Team Lifeline, possibly from afar due to Covid-19...the Pandemic. Completing a marathon (for me, a 10K)) is a personal challenge with purpose. I’m not participating for the healthy fitness reasons, but will actually be conquering this feat for yet another year in order to raise awareness and critical funds for Team Lifeline....for very sick children to experience some happiness at Camp Simcha while fighting cancer. Chai Lifeline is a wonderful organization dedicated to helping those children and their families.

Throughout the year, Chai Lifeline provides emotional, social, and financial assistance to more than 5,900 children and their families. Whether it’s counseling, case management, meals delivered to hospitals and homes, transportation to medical appointments, insurance advocacy, volunteering or Big Brother and Big Sister programming, or Camp Simcha and Camp Simcha Special medically-supervised summer camps, Chai Lifeline’s innovative programs and services help families navigate the complexities of childhood illness and restore joy and happiness.

Training for a marathon isn't easy, but neither is struggling with serious illness like cancer.. If the children of Chai Lifeline can fight each day, if they can push themselves through hospital stays and treatments, I can do this for them. I can honor my son's memory as he would have wanted...helping other children like him. 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. Join me and Jason and others. Let's do this together! Your compassion and generosity will fill your pockets with angels!

With infinite love and gratitude,
