TNT for Dad!

TNT for Dad!
May 06, 2008 by Rebecca Sforza

Five Years and Counting!

The picture above is me and my dad at the victory party after the 2004 Disney marathon. It was almost a year to the day of his initial diagnosis of mantle cell lymphoma.

I cannot think of a better way to celebrate FIVE YEARS of remission for my dad and the strength of those around me still fighting than to join Team in Training as they continue to search for a cure for blood related cancers. On October 19th, I will be taking on the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco.

Would you please support me in this great undertaking by contributing generously to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society? Remember, no donation is too small. Whatever you can give will help- it all adds up. Seventy-five cents of every dollar goes directly to cancer research.

Thank you in advance for your support! I can make sure that I reach the starting line as physically trained as possible but I won’t be able to make it there without your help!

    " Becky, I am a friend of your mom's from Sprague. I lost my husband, the love and light of my life, to Cancer,on July 10, 2007. He was only 62 years old. He had so much more love and life to share with us, as did the children and I with him. We miss him more than any words can ever express. I want to wish you the best of luck in your marathon in October. I am sure that your mom will keep us up to date on your progress. You should be very proud of your many accomplishments in your fight against Cancer. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for fighting the fight to obliterate this horrible disease. You should be proud of yourself, as we are of you. I've never had the pleasure of meeting you, however, I feel as though I know you, from all the good things your mom has shared with me about you. Please accept this donation as a small token of my appreciation for all that you do to help others. You are a very special person. Again, I wish you the best of luck on your journey. Sincerely, Gerry Horan"
