Default Leukemia & Lymphoma Help!

My wife is going to participate in the Columbus Ohio marathon as a member of Team in Training. I'm not sure if you guys are familiar with the organization or not, but this is an EXCELLENT cause, where a lot of money goes straight toward research and current patients.

We have always been supportive of any cancer research, and felt this was a wonderful opportunity to continue to help in our small way. My wife's family has a horrible history of cancer, and she has personally gone through 3 surgeries prior to the age of 27

Hopefully we never need the assistance of funds and organizations such as this, but unfortunately there are MANY people out there right now that do.

If anyone would like to assist Alicia and me with the donation towards this event, it would be greatly appreciated. Anything in excess of the goal would be outstanding! If we do not reach the goal, we will personally pay the difference, and will be happy to do so.

Please feel free to email this link to anyone that you feel may want to help contribute to Team in Training to support Alicia

Thank you,

Matt

My youngest son 22yrs was just diagnosised 3weeks ago with leukemia (AML) , he has his youth and a strong will to live. Thanks to the many people involved in research and organization such as above he has been given the tools to fight.

thanks for all that you do and have done in the past

Thank you so much for the kind words!!! We actually have been following Todd's story quite close. A friend of ours was the previous owner of Todd's bullett. The raffle was truly AMAZING to watch!!!


Later,

Please tell your son to keep being strong, and that he has a lot of people supporting him! Fortunately, we have heard of many that have overcome these particular obstacles in life. I'm sure your son will too.
