Welcome to my Team In Training home page.
In October 2009, Dave and I lost our youngest son to a “mystery diagnosis.” Eric was only 15 months old. Before Eric, I did not know the special heartache involved in caring for a loved one who was ill. I know that heartache now and know that I am compelled to act. While there are no organizations raising community awareness and research dollars for “mystery diagnosis” treatments, I have come to realize that Eric underwent treatments very similar to those treatments that kiddos who are fighting cancer go through: chemotherapy, immune suppressive therapy and bone marrow transplants. I found the Leukemia and Lymphoma’s Society TEAM In Training and decided to take action. In October 2010, I ran my first marathon in Des Moines Iowa while proudly wear Eric’s name on my bib. Through Team in Training, I train to run marathons in Eric’s memory.
This year I will run the Nike Women's marathon in memory of Eric and I need your support.
Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission.
