Racing to Save Lives

Dear Friends, Family and Colleagues: Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my Fundraising page and learn more about the cause I am fighting for. As many of you already know, I am participating in the Honolulu Marathon on December 13, 2009 as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training program to help raise funds and awareness for research leading to a cure for blood cancers.

More than 785,000 Americans have Leukemia, Hodgkin or Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma or Myeloma, and every five minutes, someone new is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Every 10 minutes, someone dies. Leukemia is one of the leading causes of cancer related deaths in children, as well as young men under 35 - and there is no known cure. But because of organizations such as The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), the five-year survival rate for children with the most common form of Leukemia has risen from just 4% in 1960, to an amazing 85% today. And this has been possible due to the efforts of people like you who have supported and helped raise money for this important cause. These people are the real 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. Just a $5.00 donation from each person I contact will help immensely, but of course larger donations are always welcome. And if you are unsure how much to donate, here are some costs people battling Blood Cancer incur, just to give you an idea of what they are dealing with:

$32.00 Prescription for anti-nausea medicine.

$54.00 One week of low grade chemotherapy.

$75.00 Screening for bone marrow donor.

$100.00 Monthly blood analysis.

$200.00 Blood transfusion.

$500.00 Blood chromosome analysis

If you have any questions, or would like to get involved beyond making a donation, you can contact The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through their direct website at

And if you would like to contact me, my email is

Thanks for your support!
