Part XIX - I'm currently training for my 19th consecutive Boston Marathon (4/17/17) with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s “Team in Training/TNT” program.
What's harder than running the Newton Hills?... adding names to my race singlet. Four were added since last year's race and three people passed.
I continue to be committed to the Society’s efforts because of the inspirational & courageous stories of the survivors, those living with cancer and for those who lived inspirational and courageous lives… they did not “lose their battle”, that phrase has to go! (please visit the Facebook page I created on this topic, https://www.facebook.com/theydidntlosetheirbattle/)... in their honor, there is more work to be done. Never far from thoughts are Dr. Cynthia Lucero, a TNT teammate (2002), whose life was dedicated to helping others and Fulvio Abela, a TNT teammate (2005 - 2012) and dear friend.
In honor of those mentioned above, I humbly ask for your support. Please remember support comes in two different forms, donations and encouragement. There are many worthy causes to support so I understand if a donation is not possible. Words of encouragement are equally powerful.
To send encouragement or ask any questions about the Society, please click the "Comment" link below.
Thank you very much for your consideration and take care!
