FIrst comes love. Next comes marriage. Then comes marathon? That's right. Brad and I just celebrated our first wedding anniversary and we're training for our first marathon (or half marathon, depending on how training goes).

The marathon (full and half) will take place in San Francisco this October and we need your support. We have chosen to run with a group called Team in Training. This group raises money for blood cancers, like leukemia and lymphoma. Aside from the fact that completing a marathon is something to be personally proud of, we are running this race for another personal reason. My dad was diagnosed with non Hodgkins lymphoma in 2007. After treatments and routine check-ups we are thankful that he is now in remission.

Brad and I ask for your support throughout this process. Not only will your encouragement help us get there, so will your donations. Of the money we raise, 75 cents of every dollar goes to support this cause. It is also 100% tax deductible. Money raised for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society goes directly to research as well as patient services. These services range from patient and family support groups to financially aiding patients. We wanted to run a race and could not do it for a better cause. The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is: to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkins disease, and myeloma and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. We are so thankful that my father caught his cancer early and is now in remission, but we know that many others are not so lucky. We are blessed to be able to give back.

Although the race is not until October, we need your help now. We greatly appreciate your support and we will keep you updated as we go through this process.

Missy and Brad Messer
