BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
ORGANIZER: LLS Pittsburgh
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
This year I am running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon for my mom Gayle McGonigle. She was recently diagnosed with Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia. As a result she is will be a bone marrow transplant receipient with a stem cell donation from her brother. The treatment and recovery of a bone marrow transplant is complicated and can take over a year. The effect a cancer diagnosis has on family is tremendous. Join me in raising money for support of diagnosed patients and their familes, donors, and research for curing leukemia and all cancers.
