BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

ORGANIZER: THE IRONMAN FOUNDATION

EVENT: YOUR JOURNEY, YOUR CAUSE

Sandy Johnson

THE STORY:

On October 10, I will be competing in the IRONMAN World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. While an IRONMAN event is a triathlon consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile run, my race will be about a lot more than that. 

I am fundraising for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through IRONMAN to raise money for Double-hit lymphoma research.

"Double-hit" lymphomas are challenging tumors, and the best means of treatment have yet to be discovered.  They are very rare, aggressive and require early treatment.

There's still a lot to learn about Double-hit.  Identifying these types of lymphomas from other B-cell lymphomas can be difficult; testing for it is often complex.

My dad, Windell Kjono (pictured to the left) was diagnosed with Double-hit lymphoma in April.  He is currently undergoing treatment at St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa, FL.  This cancer attacked and hit him fast.  Within two weeks of being admitted to the hospital he was in ICU fighting for his life.  Once diagnosed he began chemotherapy and continues to fight with all the will, strength and power he has.

However, because Double-hit lymphoma is so rare, there is no standard protocol for treatment.  Additional research is necessary to better understand it.

The Ironman Foundation, "Your Journey Your Cause," provides the platform for me to raise money that will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society who will designate the funds for Double-hit research.

No amount is too small.  Please donate and help me reach my goal of $5,000 by October 10 to fund research for Double-hit lymphoma. Every donation is 100% tax deductible.

Check out my website for more information and to follow my journey.

Research being done today can save a life tomorrow.  Thank you.
