Thank you for taking the time to visit!


The top photo shows how excited I will be if you support this cause. The bottom photo shows how sad I will be if you don't ;-). Read on to find out more!


Pretty cute, aren't I?


Hi all :) I am back from Chile and back on Team in Training (TNT)! I just couldn't get enough.


With TNT, I have a mission to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I am raising funds and running the San Diego Rock n' Roll Marathon for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). 


My initial goal was to raise $2,200 before race day. Thanks to all of the incredible support of all of my kindhearted friends and family, I have beyond exceeded this goal! So now I want to raise the bar. My new goal is to double the last one and fundraise $4,400! 



It can be done! TNT has raised over a billion dollars, which has contributed to amazing feats in blood cancer research such as the development of Gleevec, a "miracle" drug invented in a lab funded by LLS. Here is a video as well to see what is currently being done by LLS researchers:


TNT has become an extremely important part of my life. I love being able to combine my passion for running with my drive to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, diseases that claim nearly 1,200 victims a week.



I have comitted to improving the quality of my life of by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their families as well.


Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.


Anything helps.


Thank you for your generosity! And remember,

    "Running strips life back to the bare essentials. Brings us back to our essence and peels away the layers of our ego. Emotions run freely during a marathon. The struggle is obvious and most of the competition is with yourself."
