It takes more than one person to make up a team and that’s why I’m asking you to donate to my TNT fundraising page for TNT!

I'm on a mission to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I’m participating in the Austin Marathon on February 18, 2018 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. This will be the 19th marathon I have run with Team In Training for this important cause.

I Run In Honor Of: 

Michael Kaminski,   my cousin, a survivor of Hodgkin's Lymphoma
Lowell Simpson,   my friend who lost his battle to lymphoma.
Patricia Hunter,   my friend who lost her battle to lymphoma.
Laura Sizemore,   my sister-in-law who lost her battle to lymphoma.
Jesus Daniel Melenez,   who lost his battle to Leukemia & Lymphoma.
William Gill,   who lost his battle to leukemia.
Lujean Fetchenhier,   honored teammate, battling leukemia.
Stephanie Hill,   battling lymphoma.
Michael Tambornino,   who lost his battle to lymphoma.
Loren Marshall,   taken by cancer.
Marius Natale della Cioppa,   my dad taken by cancer.
Tom Schlarb,   my friend taken by Hodgkin's lymphoma
Keith Dennis,   my cousin who lost his battle to leukemia
Ronald Drouin,   who lost his battle to cancer

As you can see, too many have been lost and too many lives are being destroyed by this dreaded disease!

Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures.

If you prefer to donate by check or money order, please make it payable to LLS and mail it to me at the following address so it will be credited to my fundraising campaign.
