THE STORY:

During my training for the New York City Marathon, I spend a lot of time thinking.  It's a lot of miles.  One persistent thought is that the pain and struggle of this run is temporary.  It will end in an hour or two. 

And then I think of Jonathan Lusk, the father of my sister-in-law, Tiffany Slouffman.  He was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in February of this year.   I have followed his struggles, the ups and downs of his chemotherapy treatments and all of their horrific side effects, the strains of not working, the good days and the really hard days of his battle with cancer.  THIS is a true marathon of physical, emotional, and spiritual challenge.

Jonathan just received his bone marrow transplant on September 6th and will be recovering for many months.  I will be raising money in his honor for The Bone Marrow Foundation, an organization that supports bone marrow transplant patients and their families.  While I am getting ready to run a measly 26 miles, Jonathan and his wife, Lori and their family will be running a greater race and will be truly in need of support.  Won't you consider giving a few dollars to support The Bone Marrow Foundation? You just might change a life. 

Founded in 1992, The Bone Marrow Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life for bone marrow, stem cell, and cord blood transplant patients and their families by providing vital financial assistance, educational information, and emotional support programs. Transplants treat over 70 life threatening diseases including cancers and genetic disorders. The Bone Marrow Foundation is the only organization of its kind that does not limit assistance to a specific disease, type of transplant, or age range. 

Patients often lack the financial resources necessary to afford not only life saving treatment, but also the often overlooked living and ancillary expenses that can be considerable financial obstacles. The Bone Marrow Foundation works with doctors, nurse coordinators, social workers, and other medical staff from more than 200 hospitals and transplant centers throughout the country to connect patients and their families with the vital financial, educational, and support resources they need to make effective decisions about treatment and its aftermath.
