Steve DiLauro

As most of you know, Steph was diagnosed with stage IV Colon Cancer in 2017 at the age of 25. This year, Steph will be running with us in spirit. Steph passed away on September 21, 2018.

Through chemotherapy, radiation, clinical trials, positive new, and most of the time negative news, Steph never gave up. She fought through thick and thin and continued to live her life. In October 17' Steph and I purchased our first home. Shortly after that we decided to get our dog Jax. In June 18' we vacationed in Italy where I asked Steph to spend the rest of her life with me. In July of 18' we received some pretty heartbreaking news. We found out that tumors were rapidly growing and we weren't sure how much longer Steph was going to be with us. Within 72 hours, our families pulled off the wedding of a lifetime where our closest family and friends joined us as we got married in Portsmouth NH.

Steph wanted to make an impact and show that you're never too young for screenings. With your donation, you will help increase screening and prevention of colon cancer, something that may have helped her. Steph left money to Colon Cancer non-profits in her will, so with your gift you are helping to support her last wishes!

Please join us as we run/walk on Saturday, September 14th, 2019 at Carson Beach in South Boston to honor Steph's memory and to help raise money for the Colon Cancer Coalition.


Please help me support Colon Cancer Coalition by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance Colon Cancer Coalition's great cause! Additionally, you can ask me how you can get involved too. Together, we can make a difference!
