Early in the morning on May 22, 2015 (my 45th birthday) my cell phone rang.  Phone calls at 0200 are never good so I braced myself knowing it was something bad.  My Dad was on the other line telling me that my Doodle girl (Haley) was in the hospital and to call my sister Kressent. The nurse inside me stayed calm while the Mom, Sister, and Auntie inside me panicked.  After many phone calls and hours later it was confirmed that Haley was sick, really sick.

I have been blessed and humbled watching Haley, Karys, Mike, Kressent and our families deal with this disease with courage, grace, and unyielding fight.  I am so proud of them all and happy to finally be able to do something from afar.  Being here in Florida while my family fights in Washington is very hard for me but I know they know I am here all the way for Haley and for them.

My husband Chris is going to help me learn to run and we are going to train together in Haley’s honor.  Please join us, Haley, and our families and friends in this fight for the cure.  As a nurse, there is no greater fight.  As an Auntie, there is no greater calling. 

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!

By participating as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) TNT, I am raising funds to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.

Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day; like immunotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.

Patients need these cures and they need your support.  Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help get us all closer to a world without blood cancers.

Thank you!

Desiree and Chris Jones
