I would like to introduce you to Denise Rhodes

I would like to introduce you to an amazing woman, Denise Rhodes. Up until two weeks ago, we were complete strangers. But in this brief time, Denise has shared with me her goal of raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of North Texas so that one day we will find a cure to all blood cancers like Leukemia. She has asked if she might share my story with others and said that she would like to do the Triathlon in my honor. I am continously humbled by so many special people like Denise who dedicate their time and energy to create awareness and help others like myself continue to battle this nasty beast called cancer and win.

Here is an e-mail from Denise:

"I recently joined Team in Training—for those of you who do not know, this is program which benefits the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of North Texas. In this program I will raise money and train for the next five months in hopes of completing a Triathlon. Yes, for those of you falling out of your chairs right now—I did say a Triathlon!!!"

"Once you have stopped giggling, I would like to tell you this is a huge challenge for me, especially the open water swimming part—but this is something I am committed to do. Having said that, I cannot do it alone—I need your help. I would like to invite you to help me raise money for this important cause. By donating or becoming a fundraiser, you can make a difference! You can use the secure link below to make your donation. From this link you can also learn more about L&LS and the Team in Training program. And if you are interested in a life challenge—you can even sing up to become a participant. "

"All donations are made in your name and will be paid directly to the organization. The website is secure, fast and easy to use."

"Thank you in advance and please help me continue to raise funds by forwarding this link to as many people as you can and encouraging more people to donate!
I appreciate your support. Please check this link often as I will continue to update it with my training progress (or regress)."
