Fundraiser for Susan Furey

Supporting: 2022 5.44K - Be a Cancer Hero for Lazarex Cancer Foundation


Thank you for stopping by the page!  If you don't know about Lazarex they are an incredible foundation that helps cancer patients afford lifesaving treatment.  During her fight with cancer my mother, Susan, was introduced to Lazarex, and they opened the door to treatment options that helped to extend her time with us.  When we received her diagnosis things were very bleak, but with the assistance of Lazarex she was able to travel to clinical trials that gave her a fighting chance.  Although she has now moved on, she was able enjoy a few extra years thanks to those trials.  Time is the most valuable asset that any of us will ever have in this life, and Lazarex gave all of our family and friends more time to spend together with my mom.  For that I am forever grateful.  This 5.44K is an opportunity to give hope and time to a family in desperate need of both right now.  I look forward to you joining me, in person or in spirit, on April 23rd as we celebrate the life of Susan Furey and raise some money for those in need. 

Times and locations for runs will be provided at a later date. 

Thank you for your donation,

The Lazarex 5.44K is a fundraising activity (walk, run, cycle, swim, etc.) that you can do anywhere, in your neighborhood. DON'T LET SOCIAL DISTANCING GET YOU DOWN!  The 5.44K is a great way to be active and contribute to a great cause! Help cancer patients continue to travel to their treatments for the best outcome possible. WHY 5.44K? We chose 5.44K (3.38 miles) because our patients travel an average of 544 miles RT for their cancer treatments.  Your participation will raise funds for the programs and patients of Lazarex Cancer Foundation

REASONS TO DO THE Lazarex 5.44K: Especially now we need to ensure that the cancer patients we serve can continue to afford to get to their treatments. Lazarex eases the financial burden of the out of pocket costs for travel to clinical trials for each patient. We rely on public funding to be able to provide this service.
