CONCERT for a CURE!!!!
Jul 01, 2012

I’ve been wondering if I could do it again…meet a hefty fund-raising goal for cancer and train for a marathon. It certainly takes over part of your life. Since last year’s endeavor, I’ve added nursing school to my already overflowing plate. Then one afternoon it hit me, as I was wallowing in worry about our family’s current battle with unemployment since January—“I HAVE to do this again. I need to focus this worry on others who have far greater challenges and worries than I.” So I leapt to the computer and signed myself up, again.


The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is an amazing organization that provides support to local blood cancer patients—I have had the privilege of meeting some of these patients, and they will attest to the wonderful aid LLS has provided them. In addition, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has contributed millions of dollars to breakthrough blood cancer research. But here’s the thing—this blood cancer research has led to successful treatments of many other types of cancer! One reason is because blood can be collected more easily and more often than can tumors. In addition, tests can be conducted on “live” blood, whereas when a tumor is removed from a patient, the tumor tissue dies almost immediately. Want to know more? Check out http://t-aml.uchicago.edu/background/understanding-acute-myeloid-leukemia/.


This year, we lost a sweet, young, precious family member to cancer. Lauren was and continues to be a beautiful inspiration to me. I pray that a CURE is found very soon, so that cancer can cause NO MORE suffering and loss to families!!!!


I can’t do it all, but why do nothing? Will you join me in taking a stand against cancer? EVERY dollar makes a difference. Simply click on the “DONATE NOW” button to the right.


Mark your calendars! Friday, September 7, at the McKinney Performing Arts Center, Texas Pediatric Dentistry Presents:CONCERT FOR A CURE. My friends and I will be performing some of your favorite tunes at a show you don't want to miss!! Tickets are on sale now at http://www.elizabethleonard.com/cure, and all proceeds will go to LLS.


Check back often to see the progress we're making towards $4500 of cancer-fighting funds!!!!
