Hi Friends!


This September 27th, I will be running the Hamptons half-marathon for the second year to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma society. 


LLS helps people like my sister Phoebe, and uncle Michael, who have battled blood cancers. It funds new research and supports patients and their families through some of the most difficult, trying times in their lives.  There are an estimated 310,046 people living with, or in remission from, leukemia in the US. 52,380 people are expected to be diagnosed in 2014.


Every donation makes a difference. Thank you for your continued support.


To read more about Phoebe's recovery, visit her blog here:

2013 Hamptons Half Marathon, 3 months after Phoebe's bone marrow transplant


Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day; like immnuotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.


Patients need these cures and they need your support.


Thank you again for helping us all get closer to a world without blood cancers.
