That's Right. I'm Running in the New York City Marathon!
Sep 10, 2018


Every 3 minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer such as leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, or myelodysplastic syndrome  They account for about 10% of all cancers diagnosed, and are the most common cancers diagnosed in children and adolescents.  Well over a million people in the US alone are currently living with the disease and approximately every 9 minutes, someone dies from blood cancer. 


The good news is that treatments are constantly improving, and I am proud and excited to be running as part of Team Pfizer in my first marathon while raising funds for a global charity, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), who's mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families through funding research, and providing support to patients, families and caregivers.


Please support LLS by pledging money, using the "Donate Now" button to the right.  Every Dollar/Pound/Euro helps!


As well as knowing you are contributing financially to meaningful improvement in patients' lives, and encouraging me on my journey, if you provide me with the name of a song as a comment (or email it to me directly), I will add the song(s) to my running playlist.  You can choose something inspirational, something amusing, your favorite song or maybe your most hated and annoying song (I already have the Macarena).  Whatever, I'm sure it will inspire me as I run through the five boroughs of New York.


Unfortunately, we all have friends or family who have been affected by cancer.  Some stories are deeply saddening, and some are gloriously triumphant.  Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day with breakthrough therapies. Can you help us make more triumphs? 


Thank you for your support.

Gary Wilson
