As some of you might remember, my wife Lynn and I have been involved with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training program since 2006. Team in Training is the main fundraising program for the Leukemia Society. We have just started training for our 5th century bike ride through the Palm Beach chapter of Team in Training.
El Tour de Tucson
On November 20, 2010, we will be participating in the 28th El Tour de Tucson, a 109 mile road bike ride which takes place in Tucson, Arizona. I am happy to announce that I am the Tucson cycle team coach, and Lynn will be a member of the team. Each member of the cycle team has made a pledge to raise a minimum of $3,500 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
About the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is a non-profit charity that conducts research towards cures, and helps ease the burden of those battling blood cancers such as leukemia, Hodgkin’s disease, lymphoma and myeloma. The society also helps to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Cancer Not Kidney Stones
I went through my own battle with cancer in 2009. What was misdiagnosed as kidney stones for many months, was finally determined to be bladder cancer. I underwent surgery in October, followed by immunotherapy treatments. We are happy to report, as of the beginning of January, 2010 I am cancer free!
