My Determination, Your Donation
Jan 31, 2013
In the summer of 2012 I was riding in a car that was hit by a texting driver. My chest was smashed from the force of the seatbelt and I spent 2 months in bed and several more months going to physical therapy.
After the accident I was not able to feel my arms from nerve damage or even raise my arms above my shoulders. And during that time I got angry, and frustrated. I also felt a little sorry for myself…but not for long.
Everyday I watch my husband care for my father in law who is fighting cancer for the 4th time. And I recently learned my gorgeous young cousin has breast cancer. Heartbroken from their news, I quickly realized how lucky I am.
As a part of my recovery I jumped back in the pool…and that’s when I got the idea to become an Ironman triathlete. Hey, it's never too late to be who you could have been and help others in the process! So I am now training for my first Ironman…and I’m doing it as a member of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training!
(1) Kick ass and complete the Ironman Lake Tahoe on September 22, 2013. (swim 2.4 miles, cycle 112 miles, run 26.2 miles)
(2) Kick cancer’s ass by raising $10,000 (or more) for cancer research, as well as patients and their families.
How can YOU help? By donating!
Together, your donation and my determination can lead to finding cures, as well as more effective treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma.
