Letter from Rachele:
Hi there, my name is Rachele Davis. I am 29 years old and am raising funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) as a participant in their "Team in Training (TNT)" program. I am asking for your help by making donations to my fundraising campaign. Each donation helps accelerate finding a cure for Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Myeloma. Nearly 958,000 Americans are battling these blood cancers. Every 3 minutes another person is diagnosed with one of these cancers. I am a cancer survivor of Lymphoma, diagnosed at the age of 18, two weeks after my birthday. I went through a year + of Chemotherapy and 2 months of Radiation. I am hoping that my participation in TNT will help bring patients a LIL HOPE and support, because I too know what and how it will help. I just want to make a difference in the world and need your help to do so. I am confident that "WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE." Even if its a $1.00 or $100.00, who knows, maybe it will be your $1.00 that will find the cure.
If your interested in helping support this cause and me, please go to "http://pages.teamintraining.org/nc/oaks14/rachelemaria," and read my story. This link will allow you to donate quickly and securely, plus you can keep up with my status of training and progress throughout this mission. You will receive a confirmation of your donation by email and I will be notified of your generosity. Your donations ARE and can be a TAX Deduction at the end of the year for Charity and given for a good cause! :) Please help us in finding a cure for blood cancers, such as Lymphoma, my cancer and give people some hope to carry on in this world today!
Over the next couple months, I will be hosting several events to raise money for My Team in Training Fundraiser! Please email me at email@example.com for I will send you some information if you would like to attend one of my events!
