Hi. You may remember that I was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia about a year and a half ago.
I'm fine (really--I just had a blood test last week and everything looks good) and I consider myself so fortunate to have gone through the cancer process with so minimal of an impact to me and my family. I was treated at the Seacoast Cancer Center in NH and I was blown away with the level of service, the quality of the medical care and the warmth with which I was treated.
I recently spoke with my oncologist and she was explaining to me how the fundraiser that I am supporting is used for the kind of things that really matter--like arranging for rides to the Center for patients without the ability to afford their own transportation, or a meal for kids who are squeezing in a treatment between school and the rest of their lives.
I'm running a 5k two weeks from today and my goal is to raise lots of money for this cause (this is where you come in). I raised over $3,000 last year and I want to surpass that amount this year. This year I am being joined by my son and daughter-in-law (she is running a marathon in November so this is just a short training run for her). I feel strongly about it, both as a "survivor" and someone who cares a lot about people who have a harder time with this process than I did.
Please support me and this worthy cause.
