Happy Update on Maddi!

Hi Everyone. I am excited to tell you that Maddi (my friend who's fighting leukemia) is out of the hospital and is staying at a Ronald McDonald house near the hospital. While it is not quite home, it is a great step up from being in the hospital! She is even going to school like all her friends!

She'll stay at the RMH for the next 65 days while her immune system strengthens and they can watch her closely for fevers etc. If all goes well, she should get to come home after the 65 days!!!! Yeah Maddi!!!!

Thanks to funds raised by Team In Training a drug was discovered that helps bone marrow transplant patients (like Maddi) recover their immune system much faster. So when you support TNT you directly help people like Maddi.

Please feel free to make a donation to TNT by using the "Donate Now" button at the top of my blog page. And please hold positive thoughts for Maddi's quick and successful recovery so she can get home soon! If you are a prayer send those prayers up!!! :)

My first official team run with TNT is tomorrow morning I have to be up by 5:30am in order to make it on time. Yikes! I'll post how it went tomorrow. So please check back.

I will make my first attempt to post a video on my blog. So hopefully I'll be successful and you'll find it here tomorrow!

Thanks all! I have to go. I have to get to bed!!! :)

Good luck to Maddie and to you! You're way too overqualified for tomorrow's run, but that's ok. The mileage will pick up fast. I hope you get more people supporting you and Maddie with a donation! Thanks for the good news!
