Someday Is Today, Day 22 & 23

I am totally blown away by the generosity of our family and friends.  Two days ago we met our goal of $4000 and I ask to push towards another $1000.  In those two days we raised $910 alone.  You are all so incredibly amazing and I can’t thank you all enough.  We walk tomorrow night and please know that we will be walking with you thoughts of you and your support.  My fact of the day (last two days actually) will be just an image of our hero, Cutler.  This December will be 7 years!

Someday Is Today, Day 21

Thank you very much to everyone who has donated and helped share our message.  Today we surpassed our original goal of $4000.  Pretty amazing to get such support in only 21 days.  But don’t think the effort is over.  Time to stretch the goal a bit and see if we can get to $5000!

Help us illuminate the possibility of a future without blood cancer.

Someday Is Today, Days 16,17,18

Sorry, took the weekend off accidentally on my daily mission.  So here is a little something from a recent email from the Exec Director of LLS, Midwest region.

“In 2015, 6 new agents received FDA approval and 8 potential new agents were given breakthrough status to treat blood cancers.  While these new treatment options serve many different blood cancer subtypes, the standard of care for AML has not changed in 40 years.  LLS has brought together an unprecedented collaboration of renowned academic researchers and pharmaceutical companies to develop more individualized, effective treatment approaches to BEAT AML.”

This hits very close to home as Cutler’s battle was against AML.  While we tout the improvements in the battle against different types of leukemias, it is shocking to see that AML is so far behind.  However, it is great to see the resources being put forth to address this and push on in the fight thanks in large part to the efforts of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

A Little Throwback

For some reason today the blog site got a spike in a views and while trying to see why I was stumbling through Google and found this link from back in 2012.  Our third year of fund raising for LLS.
