THE STORY:

When contemplating who to run my 5th half marathon for, I couldn't think of a better foundation than the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I chose this charity because of a woman that I hold near and dear to my heart. Diane Perella. This woman is one of the most genuine, caring, passionate, personable, and funloving people I have ever had the oportunity to not only meet but grow close to as well. In all the time I have known her she has inspired me to become a better person, and has showed all of her fantastic attributes. It was not until after I had known Mrs. Perella for a while that I learned she is a survivor of Leukemia. Her story of survival is heroic and inspiring. She has overcame so many obstacles and today has no trace of Leukemia what-so-ever. However, I believe it is important to find a cure for this disease. So, when chosing what charity to run for, and who I wanted to run for- picking Mrs. Perella, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was an easy decision. I am so blessed to know the Perella family, with all the time we have spent together they feel like my family as well. Please donate & Help find a cure for Leukemia & Lymphoma.

Cancer can strike anyone, even the best of people. Mrs. Perella is an example of this. She is one of the best people I know. Donate & Save other amazing people from this disease!
