Every ten minutes, another child or adult is expected to die from leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma. This statistic represents nearly 145 people each day, or six people every hour.
That's why I'm helping The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society beat cancer! Make a donation to help fight blood cancers!
Last February 2012 I lost my mother Arlene to CML Lukemia after a long hard battle with the disease, she was just 69 years old at the time. She underwent a heavy course of chemotherapy and stem cell transplants for 12 months.until she ultimately lost the battle and the disease overtook her.. I want to keep the fight going in her memory by swimming 8 miles in the cold water from Boston light house to the L street bath house on August 10,2013. Check out the event at www.Bostonlightswim.org it is a true test of endurance and fortitude, which is what is needed to fight blood cancer.
Please help me keep this mission to fight blood cancers going by donating to my cause, and I wont give up the swim for a cure to this disease.
Thanks for Your support
