WELCOME TO MY TEAM IN TRAINING (TNT) HOME PAGE!

 

Each race we get to choose an honored hero. This race Amanda and I decided on a little boy whose story has become dear to our hearts. Luke's brother plays on Joey's baseball team and as he edged closer to one year of becoming cancer free he opened up about his experience. He deserves to be a hero with all that he has been through. Here is his story in his Mom's words. 

Luke had started complaining of a tummy ache with bloating, acid reflux, not eating well, coming home from school and falling asleep before dinner. After a week of the same issues we made a Dr. Appointment. On March 14, 2014 the day before his appointment his Meme picked him up from school Luke was not feeling well and his stomach was very swollen and hard. We went straight to the ER where some test were done and a mass covering the small intestine was discovered. We were immediately transported to Scottish Rite Hospital in Atlanta where we were then told he had Burkitts Lymphoma. Surgery and treatment was started immediately. Burkitts Lymphoma is a very aggressive and rapid growing cancer. We were told that we would be in the hospital for 8 months. Luke would need 5 chemo treatments these treatment rounds would last 5 to 7 days at a time. Starting over every 18 to 21 days depending on his blood counts. Secondary infections are usually what keeps treatment from moving forward. We were told to expect secondary infections and ICU stays. Luke was a trooper he never once had to go to the ICU. We put our faith in the Lord. We knew that God would use the Doctors to provide the care he needed to overcome this horrible disease so many families have to endure.  Praise God in seventy days Luke was Cancer Free! Luke has now been Cancer Free for 21 months.

LUKE'S MAKE A WISH TO HAWAII!!!!

It takes more than one person to make up a team and that’s why I’m asking you to donate to my TNT fundraising page for TNT!

 

By participating as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) TNT, I am raising funds to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.

 

Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day; like immunotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.

 

Patients need these cures and they need your support.

 

Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help get us all closer to a world without blood cancers.

 

Thank you!

    "Hi!! I purchased from your first round and it. Is. Awesome!!!!!! Ordering a second medal for me/my buddy. I belong to IRun4 and I gave my first medal to my awesome buddy, Darien. These medals are SO fantastic!!! Love them. When I ordered the first time, dark times had not risen. In January, my 17 year old niece was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. After chemo and treatment, she is in remission. I pray a cure will some day be found. I will be doing another 5K for this medal, and it is in honor of her (I did not use her full name above). I love her so much and she has her whole life ahead of her. THANK YOU for what YOU do. It means so much to me. -Kelly"
