Helen Harris was inspired by coworkers to join Team In Training (TNT) and found it especially important after a friend and coworker of many years lost his battle with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Once she participated, she met honorees who were fighting heroic battles with blood cancers. Then, at age 39, she was diagnosed with cancer. Luckily, hers was early-stage and very treatable.
Says Helen, "One of the things I love most about The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is that the research we fund develops treatments that are effective against other cancers, which will get us to the ultimate goal we all share - making the C-word a thing of the past!"
