The Feltz Fighters is a team of friends that joined together back in 2016 to support our friend Lauren Feltz. Lauren was diagnosed in March 2015 with advanced malignant melanoma, ultimately undergoing two surgical procedures followed by treatments over a two year period. Throughout this time, Lauren's treatments took a physical and emotional toll. Nonetheless, during this trying time, Lauren remained positive and strong. In July of 2016, as she continued to battle this disease, team Feltz gathered together with Lauren by their side to walk the Boston Miles for Melanoma 5k, and with the support of friends and family helped raise donations and awareness for the Melanoma Research Foundation (MRF).
Less than two years later, we are very happy and fortunate to report that, for the past year, with the help of immunotherapy, Lauren's scans have been clean! On April 28th, the Feltz Fighters will join together again with Lauren to run the 2018 Boston Miles for Melanoma 5k. Many of us are first time runners, and we are happy to continue to support Lauren and the MRF's continued efforts to raise awareness about Melanoma, focus on new and effective therapies, and ultimately discover a cure for those impacted. Thank you all for your love and support.
