NAME: MELISSA HAUN
Hi, I’m Melissa Haun and I am very grateful for the opportunity to run for OMT through the boilermaker charity bib program! I have had the pleasure of running for OMT in the past and jumped at the chance to run for such a great cause this fall! I am working as a registered nurse after recently graduating from Le Moyne College. I enjoy running because it allows me to push myself and gives me a way to stay in shape!
I am very excited to run for OMT because of the amazing support network that they provide for pediatric oncology patients and their families. Over the past couple years, I have become close with the Sheridan family and have gotten to hear about some of the struggles that came with Jack’s fight against cancer. The courage and strength that the entire Sheridan family had throughout Jack’s journey have inspired me, and I hope by running for OMT I can share that hope and inspiration with others.
For me, being part of the boilermaker charity bib program is an opportunity to be a part of something bigger than myself. It allows me to come alongside others who are fighting their own battles with cancer and gives me the chance to show my support and encouragement.
