Pam is an 18 year survivor. For the first time, at the age of 50, she married the man of her dreams. In May of 1993, Pam was diagnosed with AML (Acute Myelogenous Leukemia). But in September, that same year, she was in remission. Unfortunately, the cancer returned in 1995 and had to go through more rounds of chemotherapy. After her chemotherapy, she underwent an Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplant in 1996. In 1999, she received word that she was 3 years clean and considered cured.
We Train to Beat Cancer! The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training gives participants the tools they need to successfully train and compete in various running, cycling and triathlon events across the country. This campaign also gives these participants the opportunity to directly help those faced with leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. This fall participants competing in the Waddell and Reed Kansas City Marathon and the Nike Women’s Marathon have the privilege to run in honor of Pam.
Help us to continue making great strides by joining the LLS’s Team in Training and running the Waddell & Reed Kansas City Marathon or Half Marathon.
