BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

EVENT DATE: Oct 10, 2010

THE STORY:

When running a marathon, I often raise money for a cause that in some way has touched my life. This time, I am running the Chicago marathon on Sunday and raising for David Garrison. This is also a big marathon milestone, it will hopefully be my first sub-4-hour marathon. Please consider donating here to the Leukemia-Lymphoma society honor of David...

David Garrison is the son of our family friend who was first diagnosed with non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in 2003 - a slow growing, indolent cancer of the lymphatic system, which is part of the immune system. Long story short, it's been on and off good/ bad the last 7 years. Please read more about him here:

David is now undergoing some very aggressive treatments that I don't quite fully understand. What I do understand is extremely risky, agonizing and running a marathon is nothing remotely close to what David has been fighting through, and currently still is. He is currently undergoing chemotherapy, also is scheduled to have a bone marrow transplant just days after the Chicago marathon.

I love this quote taken from David's blog: "Despite the tears, absolute raw fear in acknowledging one's own mortality, we have still been able to find moments of solace and laughter".

I and the Garrison family all appreciate any donations!
