My TNT Story (4min. Video): Click here to watch!



I am training to participate in an endurance event as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training (TNT). All of us on TNT are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. We need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!

Many of you generously supported me and LLS when I trained for and completed my first marathon – the Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon in June 2008. (Thank you!) You might be asking why I'm crazy enough to start training for my next marathon in January 2009? Well...here's my up-front-and-personal story of my connection to blood cancer:

In Fall 2006, I was diagnosed with Acute Mylogenous Leukemia. Hearing the words, “You have cancer,” changed my world forever. After almost 10 months of chemotherapy, I was declared in remission. I ran my first marathon in June 2008 as a celebration of survivorship. IT ROCKED! Now, I am training for and running my 2nd marathon to celebrate my 1 year remission "re-birthday" from AML and the 20th Anniversary of TNT. We raised an amazing $10,500 this past Spring, which makes all of you my personal heroes. But, until cancer is cured, my feet are obligated to keep pounding the pavement to race for a cure...which means my fundraising is more than just a "one time" event. Please join me in my mission to give back and pay-it-forward. If you are not able to donate, or you already support another charity instead, that's ok! There is a lot people can do to help without donating dollars: Cheer for me, help me fundraise by sending this link to everyone you know, read my blog, and remidn your local politicians to keep cancer a National priority. Remember: "There is no charge for awesomeness." ~Po (Kung Fu Panda, the movie)



CURES ROCK! Please make a donation, and UNITE with me to kick "Leuk" to the curb. You donation may save the life of someone you love and will make a difference to someone you know... me. Thank you for your support and for being my personal superheroes!
