Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

My name is Lama Massoud. I am a wife, a mother and a breast cancer survivor.

I will be running the 42.195k Beirut Marathon on November 10 to support 42 cancer patients with an amount of USD 5600 and collect donations for Barbara Nassar Association.


Why?

Last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer along with my mom’s diagnosis with lung cancer.

My mom passed away but I managed to overcome my illness with proper medication and treatment. This made me think of all the patients who can’t afford treatment, and pushed me to run for this cause.

This year I decided not only to overcome my sickness but also to prove that the power of the mind and soul is stronger than cancer.

I will be running for myself, for my mom, for every cancer fighter, every cancer survivor and every person who lost someone due to cancer. I will run for Barbara Nassar Association for Cancer Patient Support!  

You are not alone!

-We organized with the collaboration of the Ministry of Public Health, the Cancer Awareness Village; we gathered Hospitals, Universities and NGOs to share knowledge, experience and to provide all the visitors with the required information. We also had public lectures presented by Doctors and testimonials from cancer fighters and survivors.
