Join team LRF!
I decided to join team LRF to support my best friend, Garland, who has stage 2 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. It was a little over a month since we graduated together from TCU when Garland called me to tell me she had cancer. Before my friend’s diagnosis, I didn’t know a lot about Lymphoma. In fact, I spent a lot of time on google following her diagnosis because of how little I actually knew about the disease. One thing I learned was that during the early stages of Lymphoma, one’s symptoms are often confused with allergies or asthma. This made me realize just how little informed most people are when it comes to Lymphoma. My mission is to raise $5,000 for LRF by hosting fundraisers-events TBD. If I reach my goal by the end of this calendar year, I will challenge myself to raise another $5,000 before race day. Overall, at the risk of sounding incredibly cheesy, I want to spread as much love and awareness about lymphatic cancer as possible! :)
