Best friends aren't supposed to get cancer... but when they do you support them through the ENTIRE process any way possible.

At least that's what I did and continue to do even though my best friend beat hers!!!

I would need dozens of posts to tell you about my friendship with Kendall Veazey - but I won't do that to you!! I will however tell you that in August of 2017 a huge hurdle was dropped on both of our lives: she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma. 

After a long and trying 6 months she beat her cancer and has since had a clean health report!! 

That crazy best friend wants to climb 70 stories on Jaunary 26th in Dallas to raise money for the LLS Foundation - and I will be climbing right by her side!!

It will be a fun (and exhausting) way to honor Kendall and help with research so some day no best friends get cancer!

Welcome To My Fundraising Page.

Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. Thanks to your support, my efforts, will help fund the therapies and treatments and help save lives today.

LLS's continued advancements over the years, are responsible for the blood cancer survival rate doubling and tripling; in some cases, the survival rate has even quadrupled.

And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers. They're even being tested in clinical trials for patients with a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. LLS funded drugs are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS research but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.

Please visit my Web site often and bring friends who would also like to donate!

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere I thank you for your support!
