Teams are made up of individuals. Without them, there is no team.

Welcome to DrShanWalks Team In Training home page.

Two years ago my mother was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. I felt hopeless at first, but then decided to train with Team In Training to raise money as my way of fighting with her. My mother went into remission six months later, but still had to continue maintenance chemotherapy. This fall she will undergo her last chemotherapy regimen. I wanted to celebrate this milestone and figured why not celebrate in the same way we begin by training and raising money.

I have a mission-to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I’m participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well. I have been serving on the Advocacy Committee of the Suncoast Chapter and volunteering with LLS. I have had the privilege of being able to see how the families are helped and the amazing advances that are currently being researched.

Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.
