Chasing the Cure
Welcome to my marathon fundraising home page.
I am training to participate in the San Diego Rock n' Roll Marathon (June 3, 2007) 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 my good friend Joe Droshin. I have known Joe for as long as I have been alive. Joe is a larger than life character and a fantastic guy, so I felt I needed to do this to honor him. Joe was diagnosed with chronic lymphatic leukemia 5 years ago and until recently medications have been able to keep the leukemia in check. However, as the medications were no longer keeping up with the leukemia, Joe is now undertaking his second course (of up to seven projected courses) of chemotherapy. His prognosis is good, but this is only because of all the hard work and money already spent to understand and defeat this disease. Your financial support in the fight against these blood cancers would be greatly appreciated. Please make a donation to aid the Leukemia Lymphoma Society and help advance the Society's mission. You can do this easily via credit card by clicking the button on the left side of this page.
I hope you'll visit my web site often. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Thanks for your support!
