Julian and Amanda Are Running For Jay!

With the support of many friends and family, Julian and I have been training for the Nike Women's Half Marathon, which takes place April 27th, in Washington DC.

When our Dad was in the hospital fighting MDS in December of 2012, I decided that I wanted to do something to help others, to not have to go through what he was going through.  I was still hopeful that he would get better but on December 19th, he made the decision that he was finished with the fight and ready to go home to be with his Heavenly Father.  We held his hands and cheered him on as he left this world and went to a much better place.  He has shown us numerous times that he is still with us every day and we know that he would want us to continue the fight against cancer!

Because of Leukemia & Lymphoma Society funded research and the loving generosity of Dad's sister, Pam Hartsock, who gave him her stem cells, we had precious extra years with him.  Let's help others live longer and healthier lives, together.

Year to date, I have raised $3185.00 which isn't bad, BUT my sister Julian Stacy has been kicking it, and has raised $10,750.00.  $11,855.00 (4/21/14) That is amazing!   Together, with all of you, we have now raised $22,060.00 $23,177.50 for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society since December 2012.  We couldn't do it without the support of our sweet Mom, Mandy, sister Jame' SanGeorge and brother Mark Martin.

If you still want to give please do it through my sister's page She is #10 in the Nation right now and #2 in NC. 
 Let's get her to #1! 
 The following photos are of fun family times over the last few years.  Family is what our Dad fought for and we will continue the fight in his memory.
