Running for Aunt Susan

My friend, Susan Angerholzer, and I are running the New Orleans half marathon in memory of her Aunt, Susan Hart. She lost her battle with Pancreatic Cancer last July, only 4 months after being diagnosed. It was an honor and an absolute privilege to have met her. Aunt Susan was a wonderful person, full of personality and love. I know that I speak for everyone that met her when I say that she will always be greatly missed. Susan and I have decided to join Team Hope and help raise money towards research and awareness for Pancreatic Cancer. 
  We are participating in the Rock and Roll Half Marathon in New Orleans on Feb 24, 2013, and I am hoping you'll support us in our efforts.
  It is estimated that nearly 44,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year. It is the fourth leading cause of cancer death, with a five-year survival rate of just 6%. PANCREATIC CANCER HAS THE LOWEST RELATIVE SURVIVAL RATE OF ANY MAJOR CANCER.

Please visit my personal page at to learn why this cause is important to me, and make a donation today.
