On Friday, October 11, 2013, my husband, Harlan, was diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia. We watched our world shatter, and over time, put ourselves back together, piece by piece. This re-crafting of ourselves made us different - some pieces are flipped, some have shifted, some are missing. But somehow, this process has made us stronger, better. Part of this rebuilding was a result of connecting with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) and Team In Training, and these amazing people became a part of our family. On the five-year anniversary of Harlan's diagnosis (almost to the day), I will be running my first 50-mile ultramarathon. In honor of Harlan, I ask that you consider donating to the LLS (anything counts!) and to the cure that we hope will come someday soon. Because "Someday is Today".
Harlan, with all my heart, these 50 miles belong to you.
