Racing to Save Lives

Hi everyone and welcome

to my Team In Training home page.

I'm currently training to

participate in an endurance event as a member of The Leukemia &

Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. All of us on Team In

Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin

lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives.

I am completing this event in honor of Caroline Clark, someone who touched my heart deeply and made me appreciate life so much more. I did not know Caroline for long nor did we become best friends. However, in the short time I knew Caroline she impacted my life greatly. I saw her not only as a woman and a friend, but also as a fighter, that did not let Leukemia stop her from trying to fulfill her dreams. Her presence could fill an empty room, her smiles were contagious and her story inspired everyone that heard it . On February 5th , 2005 Caroline Clark died , she fought until the end, she tried until the end.Athough she is now gone, her memory will forever live in the hearts of all of those who knew her.

5 years later I have the great oppotunity of making a difference,to try to help those that like Caroline are fighting this debilitating desease and fighting to survive. It is with all of these people in mind children, women, men and with Caroline that I train hard each day and night in hopes of crossing the

ultimate finish line - a cure!

Please make a

donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance

LLS's mission in finding a cure.

I hope you will visit my web site often.

Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your

support!

    "Good Luck Yelixsa! I hope you reach your goal. My mother had Breast Cancer when I was a little girl and I know what it is like to watch someone battle cancer. Luckily she beat it and I hope this helps someone else beat cancer to! Until cancer doesnt exist I will continue my fight to end it!"
