Personal Mission

As a 13-year leukemia survivor, I am participating in the 2009 Wisconsin Ironman to raise money for blood cancer research to find cures for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma and to educate the general population about cancer survivors who lead active and productive lives.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s mission:

The Society’s mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. The Society has dedicated itself to being one of the top-rated voluntary health agencies in terms of dollars that directly fund its mission.
 
About Team in Training:

Our athletes have walked away with new friends, amazing accomplishments and the sense that they did something even more important than getting in good shape.

How serious is blood cancer? Every five minutes, someone in the United States learns that he or she has leukemia, Hodgkin or non-Hodgkin lymphoma or myeloma. Every ten minutes, someone dies of a blood cancer.

In exchange for training and support, you help raise money towards cures for blood cancers like leukemia -- the No. 1 disease killer of children -- lymphoma and myeloma.
