Racing to Save Lives

Both of my maternal grandparents died of blood cancers. My grandfather was killed by leukemia before I was born. My beloved grandmother, one of the most important people in my life, died after a long battle with lymphoma in 2003.

Now, following in my big sister's footsteps, I'm training to participate in the Country Music Half-Marathon as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training. All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I'm running the race in honor of my grandparents. They - and all the others who didn't survive or are still battling blood cancers - are the real heroes of our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finishing line: a cure!

Training starts November 15. I'll be blogging about the experience ; I hope you'll check back frequently and consider making a donation. Thank you for your support!
