Elizabeth Stone & LLS

See Elizabeth Run!
Jan 31, 2014 by Elizabeth Stone

Welcome to my personal fundraising page for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society! 

 

I, Elizabeth Almen Stone, a Hodgkin's patient/survivor, have set a big crazy goal for myself. I will be walking the Nike Women's Half Marathon in DC on April 27th with the Capital Area's Team in Training for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!  Over the past 25 years, Team in Training has raised over $1 billion dollars for the LLS so they can research cures for leukemias and lymphomas while educating and assisting patients and caregivers of these diseases. 

 

LLS is obviously a cause that is close to my heart, and I received many benefits from them directly, obviously. Even if you've never been touched personally by these diseases, LLS is an amazingly well-run organization that uses a full 75%+ of their funding on Patient Research & Support. They contributed $73.8 million to research in 2013 alone! You can see some of their accomplishments here.

 

Thank you so much for considering making a tax-deductible donation to the cause! If you could give any amount, that would be wonderful. I understand, though, that some of us have the desire to support good causes, but not always the means. So please, don't stretch yourself past what you are able to give. 

 

Remember, for every donation made to honor an individual whose life has been taken by cancer (of any kind) or who has walked away in triumph, I will wear a ribbon with their name written on it during the race. Please let me know if you'd like to honor someone.

 

To read more about me and my experiences with Hodgkin's, and about my training - check out my blog! And please share this page with others whom you think could support the cause. Thank you!!!

LLS has struck two kids on two sides of my family, so I am partial to this cause as well. Fight the good fight for all of us. Your work is needed and appreciated! Lee Zimmerman"

    "I only have good memories of you from my childhood. Running around your house playing "homeless", dressing up in old costumes, loving your cat Emma that nurtured my love for kittens all across the globe. What I can give isn't nearly enough of what you deserve but I hope it helps. Be strong through this fight! I wish you nothing but the best. "

    "I would live to honor Alysia Wilson- beloved co-worker and friend- supreme human being who lost her battle to lung cancer (and never smoked a cigarette). At 43 yrs old, she left 2 great kids (7 and 9 yrs old) a husband and a world of friends. "You always rocked Alysia"! Miss you!! I also honor Elizabeth Stone for her latest challenge against recurring Hodgkin's- Elizabeth you are a SHINING star for us all- good luck with the Sunday race and more importantly the race ahead. You are surrounded by friends and family who love and admire you- don't forget to ask for help when you need it- we your admirers "need" to feel needed. Go and triumph dear Elizabeth!!!!!"
