I will be stripping to my skivvies and running around in the frigid February weather, all in an effort to raise funds so kids like my son, Jack, and so many other kids with NF can grow up happy and healthy. My Jack is a wonderful 12 year old who loves the Green Bay Packers, good food and a good board game.
But Jack's journey has been a tough one. He was diagnosed with NF (neurofibromatosis) at the age of four, had a brain tumor removed at age 8, had 2 follow up surgeries and about a dozen MRI's and far too many trips to see his neurologist. Unfortunately, Jack's journey is not over as we monitor the growth of a watery cist in his spinal cord, called a syrinx.
NO CHILD SHOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS, so I am going to run in my undies in the freezing cold because I will do whatever it takes, no matter how ridiculous or embarrassing, to help find a cure for NF!
Your donation, whether it be $5 or $500, will provide critical funding to the Children's Tumor Foundation and allow for clinical trials, treatments and ultimately the cure we desperately need.
Last year was the first Cupid's Run in Chicago and I found out about the event only two weeks before the race date. I did not let that deter me and with some very generous donations from friends and family, Jack Attack raised nearly $20,000 in just one week! With a matching gift, team Jack Attack managed to become the top Cupid's Run fundraiser in the country. This year, we are building a bigger and better team and setting our goal much higher - $75,000. I'll be matching donations again up to $25,000, which would get us to $100,000. It's a big goal, but with your help we can make it.
I sincerely thank you, Jack thanks you, and the millions of families who will benefit from this effort thank you.
100% of donations go directly to the Children's Tumor Foundation.
