Though he doesn't have a family connection to leukemia or lymphoma, Andrew Nerney feels the patient heroes and survivors he's met through Team In Training (TNT) are like family to him. He says he wouldn't trade his fundraising experience for anything.
"I've been hugged by strangers and thanked profusely by people I barely know. One TNT mentor and cancer survivor thanked me 26.2 times at the Disney marathon, one time for each mile run!"
Says Andrew, "Those who suffer from blood cancers need our help, and I am honored that they accept my assistance. The pain that I feel from training and the personal time that I sacrifice in fundraising efforts pale in comparison to the pain felt by the sick and by the sacrifices made by their family members. These proud and strong people need our help, and I humbly offer them my time and efforts."
