Danny Federici’s good friend Jon Kilik will be running the NYC marathon on November 1 to raise money for the Danny Fund. All of the proceeds will go to Danny’s doctor at Memorial Sloan Kettering, Dr. Paul Chapman, to help find a treatment and cure for Melanoma. Below is a letter from Danny’s wife; we encourage you to give if you can.
On November 1, a very dear friend of ours will be running in the New York City Marathon with Fred’s Team to support The Danny Fund at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Jon Kilik was by Danny’s side throughout our fight with Melanoma, and his constant support and positive energy helped us tremendously when we needed it most. He is one of the most talented, loving, and caring human beings I know, and am honored that he will be part of the DannyFund.
A couple of weeks ago, it was announced that there is a promising new treatment for treating Melanoma headed by our Doctor, Paul Chapman of Memorial Sloan kettering. It was because of Danny and all of the support we received that this historical medical
breakthrough was made possible. Dr. Chapman is one trial away from FDA approval for an effective new drug to shrink Melanoma Tumors. Thanks to Dr. Chapman, the Melanoma community worldwide has not seen anything this groundbreaking in 40 years. Danny’s vision that Dr. Chapman would someday find treatment for Melanoma is almost actualized. It was made possible through your help and donations to the DannyFund.
Let us show our support to Jon, Dr. Chapman and our fight against cancer by making a donation and making a difference. Thank you all in advance for helping us. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
