SO FAR THIS SEASON WE'VE RAISED $4,163! (some donations are not reflected in the total to the right) WOOHOO!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

I'm delighted to let you now that I have decided once again to train with Team In Training and participate in my 6th triathlon!

I thought about retiring from this crazy sport last year but changed my mind when a friends granddaughter was diagnosed with Leukemia.

Leukemia is such a horrible disease. The statistics are frightening.

  • Leukemia accounts for approximately 35% of all childhood cancers
  • Approximately 1 in 1000 children will be diagnosed with leukemia by the age of 19
  • It is more common in children under the age of 10
  • The five year survival rate for children diagnosed with leukemia and subsequently treated is approximately 70%
  • 2500 cases of leukemia are diagnosed per year in the US

I love children and the thought of even one having to suffer with the disease, let alone contend with the side affects of treatment, breaks my heart.

I fundraise for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society every year and every year I have met my goal with your help. This year I have made my personal goal $6,000. Any donation you can make to help me reach my goal is very much appreciated.

What your donations support:

  • more than 200 researchers
  • provides financial assistance to patients
  • sponsors scientific conferences
  • produces educational materials and videos
  • runs over 50 support groups nationwide

Thank you so much for your support!
