Inspirational Stories



We have been involved with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) since Steve's diagnosis with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in May of 2002.  Steve's CML continues to be successfully treated with a drug called Gleevec, which was funded in part by LLS.  This year we celebrated his 15 years of remission from CML by taking a trip to Florida with family.  Thank God for survivorship AND cancer research! 

We stay involved with LLS to "pay it forward" to those who are currently fighting blood cancer, for those who are yet to be diagnosed and to ultimately find cures for ALL blood cancers.  We have an active and busy family life with three kiddos, Luke (10), Derek (8) and Lauren (5) but we will always find time to be involved.  Thank you LLS for ALL that you do!!  We love you Steve!
