Running Against Cancer!

Down With Cancer!
Oct 26, 2017


This is my FOURTH year running in the Chicago Marathon with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team in Training! Why would someone run four marathons?

Because there is still work to do in the fight against cancer!

Below is a picture of my husband with his mother, Judy.


Multiple myeloma took Judy while he was still in high school.  

I am running in her memory, to help other families keep their moms with them longer. 

However, I can't do this alone! Please join me in the fight - you can keep your sleep and toenails, I'll sacrifice my own in exchange for your support :). Every single dollar helps to buy families a little more time together. As the LLS slogan says, Someday is Today!

Thank you!
