Over the last 18 years, the Harmon family has been overwhelmed by the love and support from our TEAM SUE HARMON supporters, many who have joined us walking or making a donation each and every year! THANK YOU! We have contributed to many different charities and events over the years and our mission has remained consistent; supporting those faced with a cancer diagnosis, and raising awareness and funds in the fight against cancer.
October is here and it is time to THINK PINK! I will once again be walking at the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk at Manhattanville College, Purchase, New York on Sunday, October 16th at 9am. I look forward to seeing many of you at the walk. As you may remember or have noticed, I am not running a Strides campaign this year as I raised funds in February for Cycle For Survival. Many of you have reached out to me over the last few weeks, wanting to make a donation connected to Breast Cancer and I have a story that may help direct your donation.
This past Sunday, I lost my very good friend, Carolyn Ngbokoli, to breast cancer. Carolyn was only 39 years young and has fought the disease for the last six years. I have been blessed by her friendship over the years and am truly crushed by her passing. Carolyn’s son, John Pierre, is in my 3rd grade class this year and his younger brother, William, is in 1st grade. Her devoted husband, John, is left single father to raise these incredible young boys on his own. Carolyn’s family, her friends, and the Hackley School community is devastated by her passing. In memory of Carolyn, and in support of her darling boys and courageous husband, her family has set up a GO FUND ME page to help them with this very difficult loss. The Harmon family will be directing all of our annual charitable giving to this fund for the boys. I ask you to please visit the site and read about Carolyn and her family. If you are willing, I ask you to please consider making a donation to help support a family who truly needs us at this very difficult time.
On Sunday, October 16th, I will add Carolyn’s name to the list of people I walk for who have faced the cancer beast. She will remain in my heart and I will do all I can to support her boys and her husband in their life without her.
Many thanks for your continued love and support, and thank you for considering a donation in support of the Ngbokoli family.
