To those of you who have donated to my Team in Training Fundraising page, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I am beyond grateful! I lost someone dear to me to leukemia over twenty years ago. The progress and research the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has done in the years since have been amazing  … and possibly could have saved her now, so again … THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
