WELCOME TO MY TEAM IN TRAINING (TNT) HOME PAGE!
I am very excited to be returning as a participant of Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training, this time challenging myself to complete the 2018 Walt Disney World Wine and Dine Half Marathon. It's called a marathon for a reason but it does not compare to the long fight endured by cancer patients looking to be cured.
While I always run in honor of my dad so others may join him as a Leukemia/Cancer survivor, I was really inspired at my most recent Team in Training event by a young girl whose mother spoke on behalf of their family's experience. She had gone through several rounds of treatment, including a clinical trial, all of which were unable to treat her cancer. It was hard to hear that this smiling girl standing in front of a packed room of teammates is unable to be cured a this time. Despite this diagnosis, she and her family were still taking action to help find a cure. I thought a lot about their story during my races that weekend. If they can continue to take action, so can I. So here I am signed up for my 6th Team in Training event.
It takes more than one person to make up a team and that's why I'm asking you to become a part of my team to help cancer patients by making a donation. A donation will help fund treatments that save lives everyday; like immunotherapies that use a person's own immune system to kill cancer. No amount is too small as every contribution adds up. Every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.
