Seventeen years ago, my mom was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. It's hard to believe it's been that long and sometimes I'm afraid to talk about how lucky we've been. In 2003, she received treatment with a then-experimental drug called Rituxan, which has kept her cancer at bay. Drugs like this exist thanks in part to organizations like the Leukemia Lymphoma Society and, of course, to the dollars that are donated by you.
On June 13, 2015, I'll be running a 10K in Central Park with Moms in Training, a fundraising program that benefits The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). With your help, I will raise $10,000 toward the fight against blood cancers. I'm running for life. I'm running for my mom and for the 150,000+ others who will be diagnosed this year and need lifesaving drugs, patient education and services. Please help me reach my goal. Every dollar is a step in the right direction. Approximately every 3 minutes someone in the United States is diagnosed with blood cancer. We need a cure and we need it now.
Please click here to donate $20 or more to help me reach my $10,000 goal. Donate to support me and donate to support the enormous battle against blood related cancers that we are fighting. We can do this!
