CANCER SUCKS. I hate it. Help me beat it.
Feb 04, 2012

In 2007 my dad started feeling sluggish and tired. He had this lingering swelling in his jaw where a tooth had been extracted - we thought it was an infection from remnants of the tooth - but antibiotics weren't making it go away. A trip to an Ear Nose and Throat specialist turned into an emergency biopsy - one of the scariest nights of my life. S$%t gets real when your dad starts telling you what to do in case he doesn't wake up from the surgery.

We discovered he had Lymphoma - and although CANCER was something none of us wanted to hear - we found out it was also something that he could beat by following a set regimen. I'm not going to say what he went through was easy - but thankfully a year or so later he was in full remission.

Fast forward a couple years. After being challenged to a half marathon by my friend Mike Konen - I had become a runner. My friend Kristen introduced me to Team In Training - the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's main fundraiser. I signed up and completed the Disneyland Half Marathon. The next season I returned as a mentor and ran the LA Marathon. The season after that I became the team's web captain and ran the Honolulu Marathon. I'm back again as the web captain for the Summer 2012 season. This season I'm going to run the San Diego half marathon.

I am also thrilled to be training and fundraising as a corporate teammember of my real estate company, Partners Trust. Many of my colleagues have taken the challenge to do an event this season also, and they are all raising funds to help us wipe out blood cancers!

Please take a brief moment RIGHT NOW to share what you can to help us in our mission to cure blood cancers. I'm dedicated to running the miles. I would love your help in the form of any money that you can spare to go toward patient research and client services for patients currently undergoing treatment for blood cancers.

Do me a favor and click on the DONATE NOW button to the right. It takes maybe a minute at medium speed.

Thank you!
