Sent July 3rd

Today is my birthday. I think of it as my own personal New Year’s Eve, a time of reflection and resolution. I always have a list of what I want to accomplish and how I can be better, a list of my dreams. This is my fifth year raising funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). I am hoping you can help me reach one of my goals. Years ago, a diagnosis of blood cancer simply meant a death sentence. Thanks to research funded by LLS, the numbers have shifted to the other end of the scale. Some day, I won’t be raising funds for a disease that has a cure. But today, I am asking you to give what you can.

Last Saturday, I was attending the Annual Honoree Luncheon. The people on my team with leukemia and other forms of cancer spoke to us, told their stories and represented those who lost their fight. Instead of being heart wrenching, each story was filled with the triumph of the human spirit. They reminded each of us why we have such conviction to raise these funds for LLS and walk and walk and walk.

Your names and the names of my friends and family with leukemia and myeloma are my mantra. On October 20th, 2013, I will cross the finish line, proud that I can be a small part of such a big dream.

I thank you with all my heart.


Please feel free to send this on to everyone you have ever met. My sincere apologies if you receive this more than once.
