Racing to Save Lives

Welcome to my Team In Training home page.

Call me crazy, but I'm training to ride 109 miles through the Arizona desert this November 21st with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training. I am doing this for two reasons. First, it is a celebration of the good news I have received this year related to my own experience with CML (Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia). You see, I am the beneficiary of the research that LLS does. My treatment was simply taking 2 pills in the morning and 2 in the evening, and I'm proud to report that I was in full remission after just 12 months and recently went back for my 18 month visit with continued good results.

The second reason I'm doing this is for all the other people who have been and will be affected by blood cancers. We need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!

Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission.

I hope you will visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your support!
