THE STORY:

Jason Koss wrote -

Help support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! 

This May, in honor and support of Jason's niece, Maria, I will be running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon to raise funds to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. 

In November 2012, our family received devastating news. My niece, Maria, was diagnosied with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.  Maria, 16, the picture of health, was getting ready to leave for a soccer tournament in Maryland when she told her mother, Lisa, that she had been experiencing chest pains.  Maria was taken for a CT scan that revealed a large mass next to her heart; she was eventually diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) and began an intensive chemotherapy regime. 

Today, Maria is in remission!  However, research has shown that continued treatment of ALL is necessary in order to be cured of the disease.  Thus, Maria  is still undergoing intensive chemotherapy at this time. Maria's attitude, strength, and will is an inspiration to all.  She has tremendous support from family and friends, as well as an amazing staff at Children's Hospital.  Words of encouragement are welcomed at www.carepages.com, search "GodBlessMaria".

The news story that wtae channel 4 ran Friday Feb 8 about the community support for Maria cab be viewed at www.wtae.com. 


The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society funds vital research to perfect current cancer treatments and uncover new therapies, in addition to providing support for patients and their families.

Please help me raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  To donate - click the black "Donate" box on this page.  Thank you for your support!

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." You must do the thing you think you cannot do. -- Eleanor Roosevelt 5 years ago
