THE STORY:

Audrey's Story

Dear Family and Friends,

Every 10 minutes, another adult or child will die of a blood cancer disease. The diseases of Leukemia, Lymphoma and Myeloma do not discriminate. They attack people of all ages, both sexes, all races.

In the time it took me to run the 5K Elorapalooza race (a mere 3.1 miles in 21:36) two people died and a third was on their way to death from a blood cancer disease.

With these statistics, you have been extremely fortunate if you don’t know someone who has/had a blood cancer disease.

But there’s good news . . .

Yes, the above is an overwhelming statistic. But it’s so much better than the statistic of just five years ago.  Three new drugs have been discovered in the past 5 years to help put more people in remission. And these same drugs have also been found to help patients with other forms of cancer.

The drugs were discovered through costly research that was funded in part through The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).  It’s also important to support the patients and their families who are dealing with these blood cancer diseases and LLS also provided funds for support services.

Since 2006, I have been running to raise money for the work of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Many of you have been long-time supporters and I am grateful. I hope you take satisfaction in knowing that your contribution is really making a difference. And I hope that you will support me as I run the 5K race of the Pittsburgh Marathon for LLS. The next day, through Team In Training and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, I will be coaching a group to running the Pittsburgh Marathon. This group will have raised a significant amount for blood cancer disease research and patient support services.

Thank you so much for your consideration and for helping to change the above statistic and save lives!

--Audrey
