How To Help Kick Cancer’s Butt!

My friend and colleague Maria Coghill has been personally touched by cancer when her father was diagnosed with multiple myeloma.  She is doing something about it and giving us all an opportunity to participate.  This is your chance to donate and kick cancer in the butt by visiting her site: http://pages.teamintraining.org/wa/Amica08/mcoghill.

Maria will be running the Seattle Marathon as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training.  My donation receipt email from them states:

Your support of LLS provides the valued resources we depend on to continue our fight against leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.  Since its founding in 1949, the Society has invested more than $550 million in research specifically targeting leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. We believe that innovations in blood cancer research hold the keys to curing all cancers. Treatments such as chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation, originally developed for leukemia, are now standard treatments for many cancers. In addition to research support, the Society offers support groups, financial aid, information and advocacy programs for patients and their families.

My wife works for a cancer research facility at another organizations and I have seen how important individual donations are.  Please consider this great cause.

    Brian,
    Thanks for your post! It’s a reminder to me that while sometimes improvement is an individual effort, it takes a huge team of support. I feel lucky to have so much support around me and my family. Your positive energy and spirit of generosity and collaboration are an inspiration to me.

  2. Having beat lymphoma, this was good to see. Thank you for this.
