Help defeat colorectal cancer in honor of Patti Martins!

personal image
In November of 2007, my sister-in-law Patti Martins lost her 9 month battle with colon cancer. Because she was only 42 (too 'young' for early screening) the disease went undetected until it had progressed to too far. Every year since her original diagnosis, I have run a sprint triathlon in her honor to raise awareness for early detection for individuals of ALL ages. This year I will be participating in the Bricktown Challenge Triathlon on Saturday, September 28th.

If you are reading this, the folks at will most certainly appreciate your donation in support of their advocacy efforts.

You can also make a donation by mailing a check to the following address:

Make sure you mark the check The Race for Patti.

Those of us in Patti's family only request that you schedule yourself for a colonoscopy TODAY. This disease is entirely treatable when detected early.

Thank you all for your continued support!
