Why I am doing a Team In Training event
Jan 26, 2014

Teams are made up of individuals. Without them, there is no team.


Welcome to my Team In Training home page.  The reason that I have joined up with TNT is simple: I miss my dad. Thirteen years ago, Daddy lost his battle with leukemia. I'm tearing up as I write this. He fought so hard, for so long. He loved being outdoors, puttering around in his big vegetable garden. When we were little my sister, the neighbor boys and I had a rotten vegetable fight in the garden. He didn't scold us for making a mess. He joined in, nailing my sister in the back with a rotten tomato. She started yelling as he stood there snickering, like Muttley from Dastardly & Muttley. That memory still makes me smile.



I have a mission-to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I’m participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for 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.


From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
