Fundraising Goal
Donor List


As many of you know, my late wife, Linda, was diagnosed with a rare cancer on January 21, 2015 and she passed away six months later.  In those 189 days she refused to let cancer get the best of her - she ordered me to attend every college acceptance day, college tour, swim meet, athletic banquet, academic awards banquet, prom pre-party, high school graduation party and every other milestone celebration that arose in our family.  She was much more a cancer warrior than a cancer victim. 

Her strength and selflessness inspires me to continue to bring the warrior mindset to the cancer battle.  As a warrior I've aligned myself with the best organization - Memorial Sloan Kettering, the best-in-the-class research institution.  I've joined the best fundraising team - Cycle For Survival, where 100% of the money I raise goes directly to MSK cancer research.  And I've surrounded myself with like-minded warriors on Team MetLife Linda Markey: we have cancer warriors among us who are fighting battles beyond what mortals are known to be capable of and we are supporting friends and family members who are warriors.  We're not victims, we're warriors.

Thank you for your support!
