Team Mustache
Dec 01, 2016



It takes more than one person to make up a team and that’s why I’m asking you to donate to my fundraising page for TNT!

I want to remind everyone of the reason(s) I am participating in this effort to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.


This guy.

And other people in my church and school who have struggled/are currently struggling with a blood cancer.

I am driven to raise money for a cure to these diseases that effect both young and old. Every time I swim a lap, run a mile, turn the pedal, I'm reminded of what Dad had to endure in his battle against AML. A battle that lasted 11 months and consumed his and Mom's daily life.

For those of you that knew Dad, you recognize that this picture doesn't capture who he was before he was diagnosed. Every time I look at this picture, I am overcome with grief at how hard he worked to beat leukemia and what a beating he took in the process.

Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day; like immunotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.

If you donate, feel free to do so in memory/honor of someone special.  

I appreciate your generosity.

Love, Ember

    "More than "I was sick and you visited me," this is "We were sick and you did something about it ... and inspired others to do something, too." Best wishes, Ember, for your effort in this cause."
