"To all who come to this happy place....welcome!" - Walt Disney

Hello everyone!  My name is Bryce Yelverton.  Last year I was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma, a blood cancer.  This was the very same cancer that my father faced only 15 years ago.  Through the support of doctors, family, friends, students, and the healing power of Christ, I am right now over 4 months in remission!  After the struggle of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, I realize just how important a support system is to a cancer patient.  

Team in Training is the marathon fundraising branch of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Our team, "The Yelverteers" are running in the 2015 Disney World Half-Marathon on January 11th.  Through your generous support our team will raise more than $25,000 for cancer research!  Don't worry, all your giving means hard running for us and hopefully a cure for all types of blood cancers.

When I was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma, I decided to start a blog to bring some insight to cancer treatment from a patient's perspective.  Here is the web address to that blog:

If you would like to donate to our cause please click the DONATE NOW button on the right side of this page.  Every little bit helps and we GREATLY appreciate your support!  

Thank you!

    "My brother-in-law was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in July 2011. A couple of weeks later my husband was diagnosed with a very rare cancer (EHE). Bill has been in remission since December 2011. Jim passed away in January 2012. Thank you for sharing your story and journey. In the past we were encouraged to keep our ailments to ourselves but through your sharing, so many people are more aware that just because a person has cancer, cancer does not have them."
