We're running to finish brain cancer once and for all!
On Thursday, March 21, 2013, Paul Freese was diagnosed with anaplastic astrocytoma. Paul is seeking medical treatment through The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University and locally.
While thankful for great medical insurance, there are a number of expenses (including deductibles) not covered during treatment as well as possible lost income if he needs to take some time off from work. Already, Paul has incurred expenses for tests and travel to North Carolina. These expenses will continue to mount.
So, running, you ask? Pau'ls sister-in-law, Amanda, is an avid runner. She's challenging herself to run 3 half marathon (13.1 miles each = 39.3 miles total) to raise $3930.00 to help out Paul. Why $3930? That will be Paul's approximate age when treatment finishes a year from now.
How can you help?
1. Make a donation with a credit card on this site. Any amount is appreciated, but why not go with $39 to fit the theme?
2. Lace up your own running shoes and ask friends and family to sponsor your own run to show Paul your support. Share the donations either thorugh this website or by mailing us a check.
3. Mail a check made out to "Paul Freese Medical Benefit"...if you know us well enough you'll know Paul's address ;)
