I have pledged to pedal 150 miles on July 21st to raise $500 for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).  They are responsible for the blood cancer survival rate doubling and tripling; in some cases, the survival rate has even quadrupled.  So I really need your help. Anything you can spare is tax-deductible, will go to this fantastic cause, and give me the boost that I need to complete this challenge.

I have lost some of my closest loved ones to Cancer. I am doing this with one eye looking back honoring them, but another looking into the present and  future celebrating those who are fighting the tough battle, and hoping that this effort would help finding the cure. I wish I was a doctor or scientist or something that could put an end to Cancer, but I am not, so the next best thing for me is try to help those who can.

Please join me in supporting the LLS by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. Thanks to your support, this effort, will help fund the therapies and treatments and help save lives today. These 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.

I am paying for all my expenses, so 100% of your tax-deductible donation is made directly to LLS as it will be indicated on your receipt.  

Thank you very much for your donation as well as helping me to get the word out on this effort by sharing this page with others.

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

All My Best.
