Why help the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Rise and shine and make it a great day. Enjoy life and don’t take anything for granted.

Last night was rough for me. Sometimes I rather not scroll through Facebook because I get upset easily. A dear FB friend who cheered me on during the worst of my cancer fight wrote that his leukemia came back and he’s back in the hospital. I cried my eyes out. My heart breaks for him and it scared the hell out of me. It’s not supposed to come back. The wheels in my head were going all night. Cancer is so evil. I hate cancer.

I share this story so you can pray for him and everyone affected by cancer. It’s tough to look over your shoulder with every blood draw. A blood draw that can change your life in and instant. I also share to let you know that your help with fundraising for cancer research can safe lives!

Right now millions of dollars raised by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society combined with Celator pharmaceutical funds helped put a drug called CPX 351 on the fast track by the FDA.

That drug combines the 2 chemos given during treatment and puts it in a pill form. It’s more efficient and less toxic. It has shown in trials to save more lives and those it saves it helps us live healthier lives and not struggle with some many health complications due to the very toxic amounts of chemo.

This pill is huge! Do you know the cancer treatment for AML, the kind of cancer I fight, hasn’t changed in 30 years!! So when you go out and fundraise or run that “Team in Training” event please know you ARE making a difference. Thank you.

Oh btw I write this as I am #ArmoringUp on my bike. I will beat this and nothing will stop me… even tears… So cancer can kiss my A#%!!

God bless!!
