Welcome to Team DIBELLA DOMINATION!
On August 21, I will participate in my 5th annual Damon Runyon event, running throughout Yankee Stadium.
As many of you know, my father, David, won many battles against Mantle Cell non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, but ultimately lost the war 10 years ago this August. Each year I participate, it is my goal to making it one step closer to a life in which no more daughters must hold their father's hand as they struggle for one last breathe, no vibrant toddlers ever have to go without meeting their grandpas, and no wives have to become widowers prematurely. Not a day goes by I don't think about my father and all the joy he's missed out on. This is the only "race" I've elected to do since my surgery, because time isn't the factor: living is.
100% of the money I raise will be used by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation to fund innovative research by today's most brilliant young scientists, who are racing to find the causes and cures for all types of cancer. Since my father's death, the mortality rate for his cancer has grown from just 2 years to over 8 years: What I wouldn't do for just a day...
No donation is too small, for the appreciatation will be ten-fold.
On behalf of the DIBELLA family: Thank you for your support.
