BENEFITING: Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation
ORGANIZER: Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 05, 2016
Hi! As many of you know, I've been diagnosed with a type of leukemia. Up until diagnosis, I had no idea there were so many different types of leukemia. I have CML, chronic myelocytic leukemia. I found this out in February and it's been a roller-coaster ever since. One thing is certain, leukemia will not now or ever, define who I am as a person. I am still the same ol' bad ass, strong willed, 5'2", Cassie Kline. Something foregin just decided to invade my personal space.
I found this charity called, The Gift of Life and I'm going to run for them and raise money for this charity because leukemia is now a part of me. I'm going to do whatever I can to help others, to raise awareness, to be strong for those who feel weak and to smile for others when they're broken.
From now until November I will be posting about this cause and about Tough Mudder, so please join me in supporting a fight for others lives and a fight for my own by donating to a cause that is dear to my heart.
Thanks guys!! xoxox #IWillNotGiveUp
