Final Preps
Mar 20, 2018

Well, the final preparations are happening - packing, securing a ride, shaking my nerves. I'm thankful for the donations that keep rolling in, and I can't wait to share the story with all of you!!! My body is making me fall asleep at this point as tomorrow will be a long day of final touches!

Geaux Team!

The Countdown...
Mar 07, 2018

In just two weeks, I'll be doing the final preps for Hawaii....the final pack and unpack (i do that about four or five times at least). I'm $2,000 away from my goal, but I'm not concerned. I'm celebrating the news that I heard today that a friend's loved one just celebrated 2 years in remission from AML. That's awesome. THAT is a reason to celebrate. She was saved by a treatment funded by LLS, and THAT is getting us one step closer.

Advances Every Day
Feb 08, 2018

Wow, thanks to all of you, I am 52% funded for my event! Thank you!

So today I was talking to a colleague who is in remission from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, about a new study at Stanford University. This study involves a vaccine that is directly injected in the tumor and kills just he tumor and nothing else. It also recognizes other areas where tumors need to be attacked. This is less invasive and more directed to kill the cancer.

At the end of the article, I saw that the study was funded by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Donations made by YOU. How amazing is that? Donations like YOURS are getting us closer to making SOMEDAY TODAY! Let's keep moving FORWARD!

Will 2018 Be THE Year?
Jan 04, 2018 by Jeanne Peneguy

Wow, 2018.... How quickly time has gone by. However, for those people that we are trying to help, these families waiting for a cure, time moves ever so slowly. Hours of chemo feel like days, days waiting to get test results feel like weeks, and weeks of hospital stays during those sick times feel like years. 

Did you ever think, though, that maybe just maybe, 2018 will be THE year. The year of the big breakthrough, the year that things turn around, the year that it all turns around? That is my hope, my dream for 2018. That is why I keep pushing, asking you to join my team of fundraisers, pushing our way to finding the cure for cancer. We keep saying we want to Make Someday Today - make this the year we stomp out cancer. 

So training for Lavaman has been slow to start. Slower rides on the trainer and very brief runs have been the name of the game. We had an unusual cold snap that's made it difficult to do too much, but it will get there. Things are falling in to place with my trip, and while the nerves are kicking in, I can't help but get really excited. It still doesn't feel real. 

I hope to have some stories of survivors to share with you soon. I have fallen behind on gathering them together, but hope to soon. 

Do you have a story to tell? If so, send it to me!

Go TEAM!
