WELCOME TO MY TEAM IN TRAINING (TNT) HOME PAGE!

This year I am back with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training and training to participate in yet another amazing Triathlon. This time (due to our new little addition) I'm sticking a little closer to home, San Diego International Tri!!!

 

I'm staying a little closer to home because this year, the cause is closer to home. 

In April we lost an amazing woman, my mother in law, Kathy. After 5 short weeks of battle she lost her fight against cancer. This was a devastating blow to our family, but Kathy was always a supporter of my efforts and I know her wish for me would to be to go on. And so I will!

 

 

We lost another incredible friend, Elizabeth, just a few weeks later who was recovering after multiple cancerous tumers had been removed from thoughout her abdomen and internal organs. 

 

 

In January my Step Mom, Char, was diagnosed with Multple Myeloma and has been bravely going through treatment, with a long road ahead.

 

 

This has to stop!  So Once again I need your support! Any donation made to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance the Society's mission helps. Don't worry about the amount! $1, $2, $5, $10 it doesn't matter! EVERY penny counts!

 

We all experience the pain of dealing with cancer in some way shape or form. Whether we ourselves have been diagnosed, a loved family member or a friend - we are all in this together.

 

My Goal is to complete this triathlon in memory of Kathleen Kenealy-Wittmeyer and Elizabeth Smith,  in honor of Charlotte Michels and ALL individuals who are battling cancers, these people are the real heroes! And to compete and raise money for a few special friends of mine (you know who you are) and my extended family who have lost friends and loved ones because of this disease.

 

Your support is needed to cross the ultimate finish line - better treatments and a cure!

Thank you!
