Miles To Go
Aug 11, 2017

"It is never a good time to get cancer, but it is a phenomenal time to be fighting it." - Dr. Louis DeGennaro

Nearly one year ago, on August 24, 2016, I received a diagnosis of SLL, a form of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. I was told that I would likely not need treatment for up to eight years, but the lymphoma grew rapidly and I began chemotherapy in early May. I've completed 4 out of 5 rounds, and despite the ups and downs, I feel confident that with all the support I have received, I still have "Miles to Go." 

The work of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) supports research for cures, as well as treatment and programs for all patients and families affected by blood cancers. 91% of the money raised by Light The Night Walks in the DC Metro Area goes directly toward the LLS mission. Team "Miles to Go" will walk again for our second year on October 21 on the National Mall. Last year, we raised an amazing $17,000. I believe that this year, with your support, we can meet our 2017 goal of $20,000! Please visit my URL and contribute to this incredible cause, or register to walk with us to "make someday, today." Thank you for all of your support. With profound gratitude, I remain #relentlessforacure #milestogo.
