I'm writing today's post to ask for your help.
My new friend Alex is 6 years old and has leukemia. He's fighting for his life right now, and I am deeply moved by his story. Please check out his blog here: Alex's battle.
On October 16, 2011 I will run the Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco, in honor of Alex. What a wonderful thing it would be, if blood cancers like lymphoma and leukemia could get healed for good. Already the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society has raised millions of dollars to help patients like Alex.
This is my very first marathon. It's an exhilarating time for me. I have lots and lots of training ahead of me. But I'm optimistic, as I've just completed two half marathons within a month.
