The Quest For a Research Grant!

Join Team In Training in honoring

Brenna Zettergren

Team In Training is rallying in honor of five year old, Brenna, who recently lost her battle to Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). Friends, neighbors and people who have never met this amazing little girl are raising money to support blood cancer research funded by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. If TEAM BRENNA raises $100,000 by June 14, 2013 we can link Brenna’s name to an LLS-funded researcher to honor her legacy and help others with blood cancers.

About Brenna

Brenna was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) on September 29, 2010. She went into remission within a month and was just over a year into her maintenance stage of chemo when the cancer came back in November 2011. In order to survive, she needed a bone marrow transplant, and luckily, her sister Maura was a perfect match. She received her transplant on March 30, 2012, and was discharged at the end of April. Her cancer returned in October 2012 and Brenna lost her battle December 22, 2012 after a very strong and determined fight against this disease.
