Five years ago my brother, Erick Hankins, was diagnosed with Lymphoma. It was one of the scariest times in our lives and your love, support and prayers is what got him and our family through the most difficult times. I am so thrilled to be able to tell you that Erick has now been 100% cancer free!! He is truly blessed and not a day goes by that he does not realize that he is one of the lucky ones.
On October 20, 2013 I will be honoring my brother, Erick and my dear friend Janelle Miller who is currently battling Breast Cancer, along with every other person afflicted with cancers, by running the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco. I’ll be one of thousands who run with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training. Yep, that’s right, 26.2 miles. It will be my first marathon and, naturally, the merciless hills of San Francisco are the best place to showcase my novice status.
Every four minutes, someone new is diagnosed with blood cancer and every ten minutes someone loses the battle....
I have a mission-to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I am participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I am improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, we can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.
To help me with my fundraising for this very important cause I invite you to join me for an afternoon of
