Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to my Team In Training home page.
I'm training to participate in an endurance event, the Nike Women's Marathon on October 18, 2009, as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training. All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives.
I am completing this event with three special people in mind.
- My Granna, Lela Maxine Davis-Gautney. She battled leukemia for four years before passing away. She was an extraordinary Grandmother! The kind of person that leaves you with life-long memories!
- Wonderful family friend, Thomas Lunsford, DVM. Tom is such a great person. Tom worked for my Father as a Veterinarian when I was a child. He was always so nice to be around...he even sewed up my stuffed animals when they started to fall apart! Tom has spent the last several years in Africa, being a missionary spreading the Christian faith and helping the native people learn how to care for their livestock...amongst other things! He and his family have touched so many lives!
- Cute as a button Sean Davis. Sean, now 7 years old, has been in remission for 6 years! Yay! He loves to watch movies, sing and dance, and has a current interest in magic!!! He is a lively little fellow! I feel like I need to borrow some of his energy for this run!
All individuals who are battling blood cancers are the heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!
Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission.
