Broadway's Jason Danieley Teams Up with the Cancer Support Community to Honor Wife's Legacy as Advocate

NEW YORK, Feb. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Broadway performer and Cancer Support Community (CSC) Champion Jason Danieley is set to participate in the 2019 United Airlines NYC Half on March 17 in honor of his late wife, Marin Mazzie. Danieley and Mazzie, who passed away of ovarian cancer in September of last year, served as longstanding advocates for CSC, the largest professionally led nonprofit network of cancer support worldwide that provides $50 million in free services to patients and their loved ones each year. "Marin and I were drawn to CSC by their mission statement, 'to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community'," Danieley said. "We could think of no better way to share our compassion for others than by assisting CSC in any way we could. This year it is an honor to put 13.1 miles under the treads of my running shoes to raise money to help them continue their great work.""Jason and Marin met with lawmakers on Capitol Hill and encouraged other citizens diagnosed with cancer and the individuals serving as caregivers to add their voice to debates over policy affecting patients and caregivers," said Kim Thiboldeaux, CEO of the Cancer Support Community. "We are honored to continue to partner with Jason to honor Marin Mazzie's legacy as a brilliant and gifted performer whose courage touched the lives of so many individuals affected by cancer."In addition to honoring Mazzie through the United Airlines NYC Half, CSC and Danieley will also present the first-ever Marin Mazzie Award for Empowerment on April 16 at the organization's Spring Celebration in New York. Danieley and Mazzie received the Award for Empowerment in 2016, and CSC has renamed it after Mazzie. The award will recognize a member of the entertainment, sports, or media worlds who uses his or her diagnosis as a platform to advocate for others.To find out more about Danieley's partnership with CSC and his participation in the 2019 United Airlines NYC Half, please visit https://bit.ly/2D5MqVA.
