Why is Mike Running for Cancer (again)???
Dec 23, 2017


Yeah, I’m doing it AGAIN, shamelessly seeking any and every dollar of support in my quest to improve cancer treatment en route to a cancer free world.  For the past 10 years I’ve watched dramatic progress made every single year.  In 1964 the survival rate of Pediatric AML was less than 5%; today it’s over 94%.  From treatment options to survival rates and personal stories, the changes from a year ago are amazing; from 5 years ago they are STAGGERING. 

We are making progress and your consideration for every single dollar makes a difference.  4 Years ago my efforts hit home when I watched my sister-in-law Deborah Miller through her 13 month battle on the way to her well-earned “Angel’s Wings”. 

Every week I encounter people in the fight or close to it – people spot TEAM IN TRAINING and they give me a shout-out, a wave or a beep.  I’ve been stopped on the road before and thanked.  You all keep me going.

I’ll put out the same offer I do every year-join me and walk or jog the Saratoga First Night 5k on Sunday, December 31st!!!  We have great fun for an awesome cause.  ALTERNATIVE: Support my efforts – there is no amount too small and every dollar counts.  Provide me with the name(s) of a loved one and I will wear their name with pride.

Know that while my focus is on blood cancers (the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society), progress benefits all forms of cancer and LLS has become one of the largest sources of crossover outcomes.  Cancer does not discriminate.  

THANK YOU one and all for your support!!!
