Jul 19, 2013

Over the years, we have come together as a family to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s events, Team in Training and Light the Night, participating in the Atlanta Half-Marathon, the Seattle Marathon, and five Light the Night Walks in the Triangle, as a team and on the local walk committee. In our fundraising over the years, we have raised $100, 000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, because they are an organization that is firmly committed to the mission Because, Brothers set out to do: raise money to find a cure for blood cancers, and support our family’s own fight against leukemia. Their organization is unique from other organizations fighting cancer because so much of the funds raised through LLS– seventy-five percent– goes back to the organization’s mission, and so much at the local level. When Chip was going through his treatments at Emory, he saw directly how they support local patients and treatments and research. Cancer sucks, but it is also REALLY expensive, and many patients rely heavily on this support. So we can’t quit, just because Chip is in remission.


So we have continued to support this cause year after year. Now we have a new champion in our mind, also. My friend, Jessica was treated last year after her twins were born for lymphoma. A few months after her chemo ended, it came back. Now she has finished radiation and is preparing for a bone marrow transplant. I am swimming in Chip & Wade's names, and also for Jessica. As a mother, I pray for her to get through this so her children can grow up with a mom.


And we have a cool prize this year. For every $10, you get 1 raffle entry into the GOLF-BEER-EATS! Contest, and you could win a day of golf at NC State's Lonnie Poole Course, beer and dinner from Green Planet Catering. See our page at becausebrothers.com for more fundraisers.


This time, the path is the unending lanes of a lap pool, and lakes, and in September it will be the Hudson River Swim For Life to swim the three mile swim. We are so close to a cure, if we just continued our support for patients like Chip, Jessica, Franny, Granddaddy, and Carl, maybe, just maybe there will be a cure. We have to keep fighting it, and hopefully it will be here before Francie and Jane, and Jessica’s children James, Isabella and Nathan, are adults. I really hope so. But if you help us, we can get closer to that, one dollar at a time. One lap at a time. One (cold, wet) mile at a time.

    "Thanks to all of the people who are challenging their bodies, minds and souls to raise funds for an organization that is making it possible for us to celebrate more victories over cancer. Some day we may be able to honor everyone rather than remember those who lost the battle. Keep it going Carrie! Keep it going TNT and LLS. "

    "Chip has been an inspiration to me for many years. We started working together at Macon State back in 2007. I could not have hoped for a more supportive colleague than Chip. He is one of the most humble and genuine people I have ever met. And I consider him to be a dear friend. Chip is a survivor in every sense of the word. He has overcome enormous challenged in life and is still grateful for everything he has. I am very lucky to know Chip and his wonderful family. Heather"
