I did it!!!

I finally did it!!!

I finally signed up for the NYC Marathon!!!

Unfortunately, it was not simply a desire to run the race that brought me here. One of my main reasons for signing up in defiance of cancer!

As excited as I am to be running this race, I am even more excited, proud and honored to be a part of the Pfizer Team in Training Team in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

This is where you come in smiley.

You see, it takes more than one person to make up a team and that’s why I’m asking you to join my awesome support team and donate to my TNT fundraising page because by participating as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) TNT, I am raising funds to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients specifically, but also for all cancer patients.

In the last ten years, I have lost three close family members to various forms of cancer: my mother, my sister and my uncle.

To them, I dedicate my 26.2 miles and in their memory I have made a commitment to raise a minimum of $3500 to aid in the much needed ongoing research of cancer treatments.

Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day; like immunotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.

Patients need these cures and they need your support.

Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help get us all closer to a world without cancer.

Thank you so much!!!

Susan smiley

P.S. You can follow my training efforts and track my actual race on November 5th on my facebook page
