"Just Peachy"
Jun 29, 2018




Have you ever had one of those days - maybe you hadn't slept well the previous night, or you felt like maybe you were beginning to get a cold?  Perhaps you had overdone it with your training (or your celebrating) and you just weren't feeling your best....  If you happened to run into a good friend, or even a casual acquaintance, and they asked how you were feeling, how would you have answered?  Would you have admitted that it wasn't one of your better days?  Would you begin to rattle off the details of your current condition?  Or would you simply reply with the typical response:  "I'm fine"?


Our honored hero for this season, George, suffered from a blood cancer.  Fortunately, treatments had advanced to the point that he was able to survive several years beyond his initial prognosis.  He welcomed and enjoyed his family, including his five grandchildren.  He celebrated every day that he was given.  When George was asked how he was, his standard response was, "just peachy!"  It didn't matter whether he was having a good day or a bad day.  George unfailingly showed an attitude of hope and perseverance.


It is this story of hope and perseverance that compels us to continue to support the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through its Team In Training (TNT) campaign.  Our team's goal for this year is to raise at least $100,000 in order to secure a research portfolio in memory of George.  His family will have the opportunity to select the area of research to which the grant(s) will be directed.


By participating as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) TNT, I am raising funds to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.  Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives; like immunotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.  Patients need these cures and they need your support.


Please make a donation in support of our efforts with Team In Training and help get us all closer to a world without blood cancers.  You can make a secure online donation by selecting the DONATE NOW button on the right side of the screen.  If you prefer to make your donation by check payable to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), please e-mail me at for mailing instructions.


Every donation, no matter how large or small, makes a difference in the lives of patients and their families.  Thank you!
