My name is Tarah McLeod and I just signed up to do my first marathon through Team in Training to raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services. They have invested more than $680 million in research since 1949 - over $69 million in 2009 - specifically targeting leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Last year alone, LLS made 4.9 million contacts with patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals.
My coworker Mary Jo was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma when when was in her late 20's, with years of treatments and tons of support, she has proudly been cancer free for over 10 years. I joined this cause to help many more join Mary Jo in becoming cancer free.
