1st Annual Karen's "Energy 4 Life" Cancer Run/Walk

By Maritime Energy | Jun 22, 2012

Dear Family, Friends and Supporters,

Please join us for the 1st Annual Karen's "Energy for Life" Cancer Run/Walk. This will be a 5K. As many of you know our family lost our Mother Karen to colon cancer in 2010. Despite being misdiagnosed, she kept a positive attitude and you'd never know she even had cancer. We were so desperate for a cure and when the standard treatment options didn't work, we flew weekly to NYU Cancer Center praying the phase II clinical trial would be the cure. Mom was given 1-2 years to live and with her care, strength and positive outlook beat all odds and lived 3 years. Losing our loving Mother has been devastating to our family and we miss her so much. We want to do this run/walk to raise money and show support for the people who are fighting this horrible disease and in memory of the ones near and dear to our hearts who we have lost. Mom and my family started the Energy 4 Life program which helps others fighting cancer. Our Mom had the zest for life, "Energy 4 Life", and she wanted to help others and to help find cures, so hopefully one day other families wouldn't have to experience what we did. Let's have the "Energy 4 Life" and, together, let's make a difference in the fight for much needed cures! The money raised will go towards the Energy 4 Life program and The Maine Cancer Foundation directed towards clinical research. The money raised will stay in the state of Maine. Look forward to seeing you on September 29th. Thank you for your support and interest!
