TEAM: WARRIORS DRINK PINK DRINKS!
Welcome to our fundraising page!
As some of you may know, bringing an end to melanoma is a personal cause for me. In May I received the shocking diagnosis of metastatic melanoma. That is why on Saturday, September 14th I will be walking in the Miles for Melanoma NYC 5K in Hudson River Park in NYC to raise money for melanoma research.
Despite this diagnosis, I am incredibly blessed because while traditional cancer treatments have low success rates in treating melanoma, thanks to recent medical advances (and a particularly amazing doctor) there are many new treatment options out there. I am happy to report that my cancer has been responding very well to immunotherapy, and my prognosis is positive. Immunotherapy has allowed me to avoid the harshest and more debilitating side effects of traditional cancer treatments. So don’t feel bad if you didn’t know I was sick- you would never know by looking at me, and I didn’t think it was an appropriate conversation to have at birthday parties and preschool drop off!
I am forever grateful to the doctors and researchers who work to develop new and more effective treatments for cancer. I will be walking with my incredible friend and melanoma survivor, Alex Farber, who has put together a team of friends and family to walk with: WARRIORS DRINK PINK DRINKS! Last year Alex's team raised an unbelievable $40,000— and this year we are looking to top that!!
If you are able, please support our team by making a tax-deductible donation! Even the smallest donations will help! The critical dollars raised will benefit the Melanoma Research Foundation, the largest independent organization devoted to melanoma. Your contribution is a huge step in helping us transform melanoma from one of the deadliest cancers into one of the most treatable (and even curable!)

From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for your continued love and support. Every call, text, email, hug, shoulder, kind thought, has meant more than I could ever express.
All my love,
