Racing to Save Lives
Welcome to my Team In Training home page.
I am training to participate in the San Diego Rock N Roll Half Marathon (13.1 miles) as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training. All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I'm completing this event in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!
Many of you may already be familiar with the diagnosis that my husband, Todd, was faced with on November 16, 2007. It was that day that we were told that Todd has Stage II(a) Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Thanks to the amazing advancements through the funds that The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has raised, my husband is currently going through a very proven chemotherapy regimen. Todd has completed 11 out of 12 chemotherapy treatments and is doing extremely well. Just one more treatment to go!
I was touched by some of my coworker's experiences while they were training with TNT during the last half of 2007and I was already looking to join the team. When we received Todd's diagnosis, I knew that this is the ultimate way to support the most amazing and strong person in my life while helping so many others.
Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance the Society's mission. We hope that our future holds a place where we are seeing more and more success stories like ours and celebrating the lives of more cancer survivors.
