THE STORY:

My little sis, Eileen Bora, is kicking serious adult-onset b-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (AKA "Luke") butt. B-cell ALL is particularly nasty in adults, but recent research has given adults far better odds. So, I want to add some running shoe kicks by raising funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Last year, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society invested $10,000,000 for Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) alone! Nice, right? Given that, not long ago, Eileen's odds of surviving Luke would have been 10%, and she now has a good chance of being cured, research is so crucial.

(Of course, Eileen is anything but average, and her odds of cure are clearly 100%, but still...)

Anyhoo, I'm a 39-year-old, 200 pound mom running my first half marathon.

If I can:

Publish my obnoxious weight, Run at that weight, and Go from first 5k to half marathon in 6 months at 39; AND

If Eileen can:

Put her life on hold, Withstand 2.5 years of brutal chemotherapy, Lose her beautiful mane again (first time, donated to Locks of Love), Beat cancer, and Remain her cheerful and thoughtful self;

Doesn't donating a few bucks seem pretty manageable?

Please give!
