How will you be helping?
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. 75% of every dollar spent by the Society goes towards research, patient aid, advocacy, and public education programs. Did you know that every 5 minutes someone learns they have a blood cancer and every 10 minutes someone dies from a blood cancer?
Team in Training provides endurance training for participants who wish to compete in marathons, century bike rides or triathlons. In return, the endurance athletes raise money and awareness for cancer research and valuable patients services such as outreach, support groups and patient co-pays.
Brandan Hickey is our Patient Hero and was diagnosed at the age of 11 months with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. He went onto life support and had multiple respiratory arrests and blood clots, suffered life threatening infections, hemorrhaged in his lungs, and spent 32 days in the pediatric ward supported by an oscillator machine to breathe. Brandan received chemotherapy treatment and more than 100 transfusions. Despite his extremely poor diagnosis and outlook, he continues to improve. Brandan is no longer on oxygen and has reached his normal developmental milestones and weight. On top of all that, he has gone through everything with a smile. What an amazing kid!! He just finished with a long hospital stay while undergoing intense treatment, but he's doing great now!
This is why I run - because I know that I am not accomplishing a personal feat of an endurance event, but I am helping to raise awareness and support for people like Brandan. With our help and donations, we can continue the research towards ground breaking discoveries that continue to allow children and adults who suffer with cancer the opportunity to achieve remission from their cancer - and stay there!
Many members of the team took advantage of the opportunity to run in the Platte River 1/2 Marathon on Sunday, April 7th. The race benefitted the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. There was a great turn out of about 1,100 runners, many of whom had a connection to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society or to Team In Training!
It was a great day for a run!
