Lisa & Kristeria's Miles for Mesothelioma Donation Page
In Memory Of My Dad/Papa Frank Downey
My dad Frank Downey was officially diagnosed with Pleural Mesothelioma on Friday, November 18, 2011 and died less than 24 hours later on Saturday, November 19, 2011.
This year my daughter Kristeria & I have decided to enter the Miles for Meso 2k run and walk for Mesothelioma Awareness, Research and Cure. It will take place on Saturday, September 22, 2012 in Alton, Illinois.
100% of registration fees and donations will benefit Mesothelioma Cancer Research.
Most people have never heard of mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. But each year nearly 3,000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma. There is no known cure for mesothelioma and, unfortunately, treatment options are limited.
The most common form of malignant mesothelioma, representing about 75% of the cases of the disease, is called pleural mesothelioma. The cancer forms in the pleura, the protective lining around the lungs. This can cause fluid to collect around the lungs and can be quite painful.
There is no such thing as any donation too small.
Please help support Kristeria and I in our fight for Mesothelioma Awareness and Research and hopefully to help find a CURE.
If you would like to send a check Please Make it Payable to: Lisa Wolf P.O. Box 639 Harvard, Illinois 60033
Thank you for your support!!!!!!!!!!
