Running for a Cure

Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

I'm training to participate in an endurance event as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) 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 am completing this event in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!

The staggering statistics are quite hard to hear- Nearly 900,00 Americans are suffering from a blood cancer, that means every four minutes someone new is diagnosed and every ten minutes someone loses their battle. Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission.

No donation is too small. The power of your money is tremendous. This is how the funds are broken down:

$ 500 provides a patient with patient aid to support medical treatment and to travel to medical appointments for one year.

$ 500 allows 10 patients to logon to a webcast and hear the latest information in treatment for their disease.

$ 150 allows 5 patients to make a First Connection with a trained peer volunteer.

$ 200 provides a Family Support Group Program for one year.

$ 100 provides 3 patients access to an informational teleconference.

$ 75 is the average cost of tissue typing to become a bone marrow donor.

$ 50 is the cost of a CT scan.

$ 40 is the cost of sending a comprehensive packet of information for children with cancer.

$ 35 pays for transportation expenses for a patient

$ 25 covers a single prescription co-payment.

$ 5 is the cost of sending a newly diagnosed patient packet which includes information about their specific disease and support.

As you can see, your money goes very far with LLS, every dollar counts!

I'd like to thank each and every one of you for visiting my page, showing your support, and donating. Without your help, I would not be able to accomplish this. Thank you for your time and generosity!

    "Besides my donation to the Ladies Afternoon Tea Society, all the baking and Sandwich making, I also want to help pay for some of the cost of the ingredients so more of the collected money goes to the cause. I hope this helps add a little more back into the final total from the all of us here who love and support what you're doing. My niece runs for me and my deceased siter-in-law for breast cancer, so I know what a commitment and sacrifice you and your team are making. I salute, honor, thank and admire all of you...but especially you, "my Jessie" (Mom said I can share if it's okay with you!). Love you!"
