Let's Save Lives!!!

First of all let me say thank you for taking the time to visit my page. It is truly appreciated.

So I have decided to run the Walt Disney World Marathon on January 10th 2010. I have signed up with Team in Training to help me complete this personal goal. If you do not already know, Team in Training is an organization that helps individuals train for endurance events while raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. All donations that I receive will go directly to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Your donation no matter how big or small will help fund the research needed to cure these blood cancers. Your contributions will also help patient's and their families get through these trying times.

I am very passionate about this organization. As a registered nurse that has worked with pediatric oncology patients I have seen first hand the toll that leukemia and lymphoma can take on a patient as well as their families. I also, like many others, have a personal connection; my grandfather passed away three years ago after being diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. I have seen how a perfectly healthy individual can be taken so quickly by Leukemia. There are thousands of men, women and children fighting right now for their lives against these cancers; I feel that the least I can do is to take full advantage of my good health and do something that will positively effect each and every one of their lives.

Please help me along this journey and together we CAN make a difference in the strides against cancer.

I truly appreciate any donation you are willing to make; but more importantly those currently dealing with these blood cancers appreciate it that much more.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity. I will see you at the finish line!
