My Redemption as a Two-Time Survivor
Nov 13, 2013

I DID IT!!! I completed the Half Marathon in a net time of 3:33 hours and I'm so proud of it! Definitely a wonderful experience and I'm already planning my next TNT event for 2014!!!

Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

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

I'm very excited to be doing the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Team In Training Wine and Dine Half Marathon at Disney on November 9, 2013.

I'll be running primarily for my daughter and my miracle of life Anna Isabelle, also my husband, my dad as a survivor, my friends the survivors: Olgui, Lisa, Taty, John, Angelie, and the fallen angels: Maria, Angel, Veronica, Krysta, Rene and now my cousin Freddy. Rest in peace Freddy and all my angels! I'm also running for me because I can! :) And my caregiver and angel, mom!

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.
