Welcome to my Personal Page
For my community service this November, I will be running the Los Angeles Half Marathon with the Hirshberg Foundation Training Team for Pancreatic Research. Hirshberg is a non-profit that raises funds to help find a cure for Pancreatic Cancer.
An insidious disease, Pancreatic cancer is the third highest cancer killer in the US both among men and women. Nine out of ten pancreatic cancer patients will die, averaging a life expectancy of just 3-6 months after diagnosis. I was inspired to join this group last fall when we lost two beloved icons to this disease: Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Alex Trebek.
In addition to completing my 13.1-mile race, I have also committed to raising $2,000 to honor my own remarkable friend, Alexis Vergara who also died from this cancer in his early thirties and left behind a wife and two young daughters.
Please join me in making a difference with a tax-deductible donation toward these fundraising efforts.
Thank you - your generous support will help make a difference in the Foundation’s endeavors!
