Team Running for Cover is running the 2013 Boston Marathon to raise funds to support MFNE's mission of education, prevention and support.
I lost my first wife and best friend at the young age of 30 in May of 2000. We were together for 10 years. At that time a third of my life was spent with her.
It’s hard to imagine that lack of knowledge about Melanoma, sun screen and moles cost Susan her life.
Words that you have heard before are so true, if I had only known the truth about Melanoma.At the age of 30, Susan had a mole on her back. She was 6 months pregnant with a baby boy. That’s when life changed. We were told that we had to terminate pregnancy and start treatment immediately. A moment I’ll never forget Susan looked at me and said “I’m sorry, Randy”. I’ll forever feel fortunate to have had that time with someone so special and giving.
With my second wife and our three children,we are well educated about Melanoma and we take the right precautions to protect the entire family.
Education is the key to prevention, early detection and treatment.
I am running the Boston Marathon for Melanoma in memory of Susan LeBlanc (Tobia) for three reasons.
(1) One to make her proud.
(2) To keep her memory alive
(3) To raise money and awareness so hopefully less people will have to go through this.
Since it's inception in 2006, Running for Cover has raised over $1 million to
support MFNE. I am thirlled to be a part of this team for the 2013 Boston
Help me cross the finish line by donating to my fundraising efforts. Together we can help reduce the incidents of Melanoma in the New England area.
