I’m training to participate in the Athens, Greece marathon as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training in memory of 16 year old Matthew Chung who died from complications of Leukemia. Matthew was very brave and strong in all of his illness, he was an extraordinary child and brilliant in all of his school life he loved his family dearly as much as they loved him, he is truly their angel from above. All of us on Team In Training are raising funds to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. I am completing this event my 6th, in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. These people are the real heroes on our team, and we need your support to cross the ultimate finish line – a cure!
Pictured above is Matthew and my 2006 finish, yes it was 26.2 miles then too. Please make a donation, in any amount you can, to support my continued participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS’s mission.
