I am raising funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) as a participant in their Team In Training program and I'm asking you to help by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. I am running 26.2 miles in the Nike Womens Marathon in San Francisco to accomplish my goal of completing a marathon, but more importantly for those who are battling this life threatening disease. I am running in honor of a friend's daughter who is 11 years old. Desmon is currently battling leukemia while fighting Crohn's Disease. She has been receiving treatments for many months and is determined to be a normal healthy young lady. She has a strong and funny spirit and keeps hospital staff on their toes while she is there for weeks/months at a time.
Each donation helps accelerate finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. More than 823,000 Americans are battling these blood cancers. I am hoping that my participation in Team In Training will help bring them hope and support.
Please use the link in this email to donate online quickly and securely plus learn more about my progress. You will receive a confirmation of your donation by email and I will be notified as soon as you make your donation.
On behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Desmon, thank you very much for your support. I greatly appreciate your generosity. Together, we can find a cure!
P.S. I would appreciate it if you would forward this email to as many people as you can to encourage them to donate as well. Thanks again.
