Many of us know or have known someone that has been diagnosed with cancer. Cancer is a disease where once normal cells in the body display uncontrolled growth. One category of cancers that have an effect on many individuals either directly or indirectly are blood cancers including leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Here are some statistics on blood cancers:

  • An estimated 912,938 people in the United States are currently living with, or are in remission from blood cancer.
  • In 2010 another 139,860 people in the United States will be diagnosed with blood cancer.
  • Blood cancers will cause the deaths of an estimated 53,240 people in the United States this year.
  • Every ten minutes, someone dies from a blood cancer. This statistic represents nearly 146 people each day, or more than six people every hour.
  • Leukemia causes more deaths than any other cancer among children and young adults under the age of 20.

As a country we need to raise money for cancer research so that hopefully future Americans will not be affected. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society has stepped up to the plate by organizing several ways for people to raise money for blood cancer research one being Team in Training (TNT). TNT is a group of individuals that train together for a marathon, half marathon, or triathlon. While training for their particular event they raise money for cancer research through donations.

Cole Chiropractic Clinic is supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society on behalf of Kristin Bostic. Here is what she says:

My first event with Team in Training (TNT) was the Marine Corps Marathon last fall, where I raised over $3,500 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society,” Bostic said. “I enjoyed the experience so much that I decided to train & fundraise with TNT again this year. I will be running the full Chicago Marathon as a TNT alumni mentor on 10/10/10 and am working to raise over $2,600 for blood cancer research throughout my training.”
