Welcome to my Team In Training home page!

I am participating in the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon 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 running and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.
Five years ago, at the age of 23 my brother, Justin Restauri, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). After undergoing months of chemotherapy and radiation treatment, Justin received a hematopoietic stem cell transplant which was followed eventually by a double lung transplant in April 2012. These past few years have been an incredible challenge for him and for our entire family.  I am extremely grateful for the decades-long efforts of the LLS to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers like ALL; there is no doubt that the LLS's work had an enormous impact on Justin's treatment and recovery.
Today, my brother is not just alive, but thriving.  A few weeks ago Justin made the commitment to run the NYC Marathon with TNT.  I am incredibly proud of my brother, and in an effort to support his run and support the LLS, I have committed to run the marathon with him. 
But if I'm ever going to reach the finish line with my brother, I'm going to need your help. I have pledged to raise at least $3,900 to support my efforts with TNT and help advance research for cures. Won't you please consider making a donation today? You will receive a confirmation of your secure donation by email, and I will be notified as soon as you make your donation.
There are also other ways for you to show your support. Please share my fundraising page widely with your networks (roll over the "Tell Your Friends" menu for some easy, one-click options) and tell your friends and family about the mission of my TNT and LLS.  
Thank you all for your love and support--past, present, and future. I look forward to updating you on my progress over the next few months, and seeing you on race day!
With gratitude,
Sara Kreidler
