Welcome to my Team In Training home page.


Leukemia stinks. There is nothing good about it. For the five months my son, Spencer, bravely fought this terrible disease, I felt helpless. I wanted to take his pain away. I wanted to see him playing lacrosse again. I wanted to see him doing the things a Junior in High School does, the things all his friends were doing. Well, we are now five months removed from Spencer's treatments, and all thanks to our loving Heavenly Father, Spencer remains in remission. We pray it stays that way!


With Spencer returning to his pre-cancer health, I feel a burning compulsion to do something about cancer. Something big. I am not a doctor. If I were, I would devote my time to researching and promoting a cure for this nasty disease. I can, however, do all I can to support those who are fighting to find a cure. So much progress has been made. If Spencer's leukemia came 20 years ago, his result would have almost certainly been very different than it has been. We have come so far to give hope to those who suffer from this disease. We have so far yet to go to eradicate this disease with a cure.


In the past 10 months, nearly every person reading this has served Spencer and my family. So many came to us through our trial and asked "what can we do to help?" Through your prayers, your kind words of support, your countless acts of service, we have stayed afloat through this trial. Our gratitude for you is endless and WE THANK YOU!!!! We could not have made it through this without your love and support.


I have decided to embark on my own mission to "help". I am hoping you all will join me in my effort. I am an endurance athlete. I love challenging myself. This past year, I have been unable to carry on this passion in order to help my family through the struggles we have faced. I would like to now get back into my passion for endurance training. In honor of my son, Spencer, I have registered to run in the Rock 'n Roll marathon in Washington DC as well as ride the Montauk 100 mile bike ride in New York next spring. I will run, I will bike, for Spencer. I will run, I will bike, to raise funds to fight the nasty disease that embattled my son. I ask my great network of friends and family to join me in this effort. I am committed to raising $10,000, at least, through my involvement in these two races. That is a significant chunk - in my mind worthy of doing something "big" to fight this terrible disease. Deepest thanks for your donation to my effort. Any amount helps! Words can not express my gratitude to those who have already joined me in this effort to fight back through your donations. It means the world to me and my family and will go a long way to making a difference!


Thank you again for all you have done for my family and for Spencer! And thank you for supporting my new life's ambition to do all in my power to help further the tremendous advances that have been made to fight and conquer leukemia!

    "Spencer is my big brother and I couldn't have asked for a better role model. Ever since we were little he's been an extraordinary example to me. The day he was diagnosed with leukemia was honestly the scariest day of my life. All I could do was pray for a miracle. Now that he's better I wanted to do something (no matter how small or insignificant it may be) to help other people's miracles happen. Over winter break I made and sold 168 cupcakes to help support LLS! It was an amazing experience and I plan on doing it again in the future!"
