As some of you may know, my dear friend (and my first girlfriend) Jennifer Schwartz, was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a type of cancer that compromises your body’s ability to fight infection. In an effort to show Jennifer that she is not in this fight alone, I am training to compete in the Publix Escape to Miami Triathlon on September 23rd to raise money for the Lymphoma Research Foundation.
Jennifer Schwartz grew up in Miami, Florida and was a student at Ransom Everglades High School. Jennifer attended and graduated from the University of Michigan and is now a beautiful 23-year-old active woman currently attending nursing school at the University of Miami. Jenn is one of the kindest people I have ever met and as always, as she faces this most difficult life challenge of the diagnoses of cancer and chemotherapy, she still has a gorgeous smile on her face.
The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) is the nation's largest non-profit organization devoted exclusively to funding innovative lymphoma research and providing people with lymphoma and healthcare professionals with up-to-date information about this type of cancer. LRF's mission is to eradicate lymphoma and serve those touched by this disease.
