Welcome to my MWOY Fundraising Page

The Grand Finale!!

May 18, 2013

Wow! It's finally here! The BIG day! The Grand Finale! The culmination of 10 weeks of intense fundraising, auction item gathering, educating about LLS and convincing a lot of people that I'm not crazy!! It's been quite a ride!! I have had the opportunity to meet so many individuals cured from blood cancers and some still fighting. I see sheer happiness in some and hope, fear and strength in others. Together we are working to raise valuable funds to increase research and get closer and closer to simplified therapies and quicker recoveries. Today there is over a 90% cure rate compared to 30% in the 1960's. We have come so far, yet, we aren't quite there yet. Too many beautiful lives are taken too soon. This campaign has shown me the extreme generosity in so many. I am deeply touched by the notes of encouragement and support I have received. I certainly wasn't in this alone. Thank you, thank you, thank you to so many. My cup runneth over.

4 and 3 days to go!

May 15, 2013

I lost track of time yesterday and didn't get day 4 in so here we go! How can you donate? Here are some ways to plan your donation.....

4: I have been running for 2 1/2 years for sweet, little Katie. She finished her 27 months of chemotherapy and multiple cancer therapies when she was 4. How about $1 for each of her months in therapy?

3: In two weeks I will be home from my 3rd marathon with Team in Training. How about $26 for a marathon or $78 for all three?

Thank you for your help in supporting me and for those I run in honor and memory of. Your dollars translate into new and advanced therapies that help get more directed therapies and higher and higher survival rates!! Someday is Today!!

6 days to go!!!

May 11, 2013

Six days to go! How can you help?

How about a $5 donation for each general type of blood cancer LLS researchers are working to find safe treatments, vaccines or cures for:



Hodgkin's disease


Myelodysplastic disorders

Myeloproliferative neoplasms

Many people are touched by these diseases and you can help with just a small donation.

Thank you!!

Home Stretch!!

May 09, 2013

It's officially 8 days until the final Gala! Holy cow! Where did the time go?? I am overwhelmed by the generosity of so many friends, family and their connections!! There is still time to help me work toward an amazing goal! Give what you can or ask those around to help and donate as a group! Any amount helps and I am thrilled to see so many names on the list to the right!

The final gala is coming up next Saturday, May 18th at the Coralville Marriott. If you would like to see a decently "cleaned up" me, let me know and I will be happy to get you tickets!
