Join Me and My Family As We Fight Cancer

Name: Chris West
Event: TCS New York City Marathon
Date: November 3, 2019


I'm running and raising money with Fred's Team to support critical cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). I’m committed to making a difference in the lives of countless people touched by cancer because our lives have been impacted by cancer.

I married my high school sweetheart 30 years ago in July. During our life together, we have been blessed with four amazing daughters and 4 grandchildren (soon to be 5). Unfortunately, just over two years ago, my wife and I received the worst news we could imagine. She was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. As a result, we have spent the last 2 years on a journey we never expected to take. However, we are living a victorious life not only because she is a warrior with an insatiable will to survive, but because of life saving research. My wife’s diagnosis would have been a death sentence 7 years ago. However, due to groundbreaking research during that time, new treatments were developed and released which have given us an extremely positive long-term prognosis. I simply don’t know a life without her because we met when we were 16 years old. Consequently, I run to support not only her, but all other people who are on this journey and who have finished their journey.

By donating to my race, you will be giving doctors and researchers at MSK the funding they need to make groundbreaking discoveries and conduct lifesaving clinical trials. When we donate, other people just like my wife, benefit and are given a new lease on life. This disease kills. It hurts families and changes lives. Please support me and my family in this journey by donating. From a personal perspective, you are funding the ability for people like us to see and celebrate not just our 30th anniversary, but God willing, our 50th anniversary. Every dollar raised is another important stride toward progress and brings us one step closer to a world without cancer.
