WELCOME TO MY TEAM IN TRAINING (TNT) HOME PAGE!
Many of you knew us back in BC (before cancer) or around 1 AD (the year after diagnosis). You may remember Pedro looking like an extra for Shindler's List. If you don't know about those years, here are some photos from our journey. I've written more about it on my blog, Blessed (but Stressed).
Ever since Pedro's stem-cell transplant at the University of California San Francisco's Parnassus Campus hospital on January 3, 2003, Pedro has continued to heal and experience a whole new set of firsts that he never thought he would be blessed with.
And ever since Pedro's transplant, I've wanted to do something to honor his journey and help others who suffer from blood cancers. That's why I'm choosing to join the the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team in Training (TNT) program.
So I've done it! I've registered for the San Diego Rock-N-Roll Marathon (yes, you read that correctly! This old lady thinks she can run for 26.2 miles) on June 4, 2017. By participating as a member of TNT, I am raising funds to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
Think of it as an old-fashioned school walk-a-thon fundraiser--only I plan on running, not walking. I'd like to raise $1200 (or more!).
Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day; like immunotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.
Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help get us all closer to a world without blood cancers.
