Elliot admitted that coping with her loss is an ongoing ordeal, but contributing to the cause for cancer research is a means of achieving fulfillment.
“People say it will get better, but, honestly, it never gets any easier. You just learn to live with it,” she said. “It changes you in so many ways. My entire life and outlook on life has changed. Life is too short, and Jenn and I have witnessed that. (Running in the Dana-Farber event) provides me with a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment — that I’m helping make a difference in the fight against cancer.”
Along with running in the Dana-Farber race, Elliot and Lambert host a yearly benefit cruise — called the Sunset Cruise — to raise money. Operated out of Al Gauron’s Fishing Fleet in Hampton, N.H., the cruise has raised over $3,000 annually the past four years.
