I am a two time survivor of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma with initial diagnosis in 2002 and most recently, a recurrence in 2013. A CT scan & biopsy in March of 2013 confirmed that the abdominal pain I was experiencing was a recurrence of the cancer and this time, a more aggressive type. After 6 rounds of R-CHOP chemotherapy, I am cancer-free. I am running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon to raise funds for the advancement of treatment in fighting this deadly disease as well as in tribute to God and my army of supporters who were my Rock and diligently helped me through this difficult trial. You can support my efforts or the efforts of my 3 teammates running the Half with me by visiting our sites on the Leukemia Lymphoma Society under the Pittsburgh Marathon webpage. Team members include my wonderful daughter, Allison Shade, who pushed me to run this Race and dear friends Lorraine Koch and Kathy Kaminski, who stood by me each step of my journey & rehabed me back into running again after treatment. Thanks in advance for any funds you are able to contribute.
