Welcome to my Team In Training home page dedicated to Michelle Merz and her sister Willhelmina Hillal.

Many of you may know that my ex wife Michelle died of breast cancer on July, 3, 2011.

What most of you probably don't know is that her sister Wilhelmina died from Leukemia as a child.

It was always Michelle's wish to help find a cure for Leukemia.

To accomplish that mission and to honor Michelle, I’m participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training.

Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.

Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.

    "Chris, I'm saddened to hear of your wife's passing. We regularly give to LLS and are honored to give in my oldest son's name. Payden (15) is a year and a half into his treatment for Hodgkins Lymphoma and all reports are that he is clear of his cancer at this point. I hope that you reach your goal and thanks for reaching out. Bill"
