Cancer research is an important part of my life, as many of you know my Sister, Sue Klahr is a Breast Cancer Survivor and my Dad was a Colon Cancer Survivor. Cancer research is very important to me. This year I will be adding names to my bib for those who have lost their battles with Cancer, no matter what type as well as those survivors I know, recently diagnosed and going through treatment.

For the most part, I am doing this triathlon in my Brother-in-Law, Robert Brecher's honor and memory, and for my other family members who have lost their lives to cancer or complications from the treatments, my Sister-in-Law, Karen Klahr and cousin who I never met, Stuart Settler.

I am including a poem written by my son Daniel at age 6 when he lost his Uncle Robert. I think it says it all.

A poem written by son Daniel at the age of 6 when my Brother-in-Law passed away after receiving a bone marrow transplant. He was 34 leaving behind a loving wife and 2 very young children.

My Uncle Robert

By Daniel Brecher (First Grade)

He is nice.

He is strong.

He is the best.

I love him.

He loves me.

When me and my Dad look at his pictures

We Cry

The End

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

    "Ellen, Best of luck to you in your upcoming challenge and keep up the great work toward finding a cure to this terrible disease. I can't thank you or the Team enough for what you do. You truly are heroes to all who've been afflicted by a blood cancer and to the families of those of us whose loved one lost the fight. GO TEAM!!"
