Hi! Thank you so much for visiting the team page for TEAM LARISSA!
Larissa Gionfriddo Podermanski was a lovely, unique woman. She was an advocate for people with disabilities and sought to create a more equal environment for everyone. At the age of 30, Larissa was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer in 2016. She dedicated all the energy she had into educating people about Metastatic Breast Cancer all the way until the end.
We will join together for 2019 CT RACE IN THE PARK to honor Larissa’s memory. Let’s have fun while doing so!
“I thought you’d always be there….I know you’re shining down on me from heaven…and I know eventually we’ll be together...” – Lyrics to One Sweet Day by Mariah Carey
Together we will find the cure!
