About this cause:
Nick and Allyson have signed up again for the Walt Disney World Marathon for 2018.
They are running in honor of Allyson's 10 year anniversary of remission of Hodgkin's Lymphoma!
For those who may not know, Allyson was diagnosed at 22 with Stage 2A Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She was just finishing school, clinicals and working 2 jobs. She had 6 months of chemotherapy and as a result, she lost all of her hair, even though she tried everything she could to prevent it, gained weight, fatique and now as the years go on, she has an anxiety/panic disorder, hair and skin texture is completely different than before treatment and still goes for 6 month check ups to make sure that she is not relapsing. She continued to work 2 jobs during treatment and try to have a social life but it was difficult and her confidence was lost. Nick was just a coworker at the time but he didn't treat her any different and says he didn't even notice when Ally would come in to work with different colored hair when she wanted to switch up her wigs! Now, Nick is a constant support for Ally and they ran the Half Marathon in honor of her 5 year anniversary so they of course want to run for her 10 year anniversary being in Disney!
Nick will be running the Dopey - 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Full Marathon (48.6 miles in 4 days), and Allyson will be running the 5K, 10K & Half Marathon (22.4 miles).
They have teamed up to run with with Team in Training for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society again to help others get the funding they need for cancer research so all who get the devastating news that they have cancer will have as great of a chance at survival as Allyson was given.
They have raised their bar of what they'd like to raise to be higher than last time, so for every item sold, 10% of the sale will be going to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!!
