I am starting my seventh-year participating in Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training endurance and fundraising program – cycling 100 miles around Lake Tahoe, June 3, 2018.
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world’s largest health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. The mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Over the past 3 decades, with the help of Team in Training participants, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has:
In just 2017, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society got more than 10 FDA drug approvals for blood cancers. And over the past 17 years, nearly 40% of all FDA approvals for ALL cancer treatments began with blood cancer patients.
This year, I’m riding in honor of two people! Again, I’m riding for my friend Mike Hoben’s son Colin, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2014. In January 2018, Colin will hit a big milestone – 2 years of remission! He continues to thrive!
I am also riding for my mother, Mary, who is now facing down breast cancer at 80, it may not be blood cancer but cancer is cancer and all types needs to be stopped.
By making a tax-deductible contribution through my fundraising page, you are supporting research and family services to those affected with blood cancers. Help me get closer to a world without ALL cancers.
