Taking Action to Create Hope!

Action = Hope!
Nov 02, 2016

We need more hope! 2017 will be my third year running in the Chicago Marathon with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training (TNT)! I am running in memory of my husband's mother Judy, who lost her battle with multiple myeloma while he was a senior in high school. 

My awesome TNT coach Marie put it best: everyone wishes there were a cure for cancer, but that's not enough. We need action! Action creates hope: hope for a cure, hope for better quality of life, hope for keeping families affected by these terrible diseases together longer.

Take action with me today, and create hope!

    "Hi, I'm so excited about getting the much needed resources for my High School Nutrition-Cooking class!! I've recently returned to teaching after being a stay at home mom for 22 years!!! It's been a looooong time for me out of the classroom and I had thrown away all of my fantastic resources that I used years ago when teaching Nutrition and Cooking labs!! Good luck on your fundraising also for this worthy cause!! Toni Floyd tfloyd@columbiaschools.org Columbia, Mississippi"
