You've done so much and here I am asking for more...
As you know, this blog was started the week I found out I had cancer... well, even before we knew what it was. It is here that I documented my journey and it is here that I'm asking for your help yet again. As you know, Melanie, Jeff, Jaymeson, Lexi, Sara and I are all running the Nashville Half Marathon. We've decided to run to support the Lymphoma & Leukemia Society. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. LLS's mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Since its founding in 1949, LLS has invested more than $600 million in research specifically targeting blood cancers.
Because of this society's funded research, some of my own treatments were discovered/developed. I owe them so much. Please follow this link, read Melanie's amazing letter and see if you can help us out. A million times thank you. I really believe in this cause. Your donation is tax-deductible and if your business would like to contribute, we are working on t-shirts (among other things) and would love to showcase your logo showing your sponsorship.
I'll be updating our success on the blog. I'm really excited about this.
I love you all,
