The "Mighty" Quinn!!!

"Mighty" Quinn
Anyone who knows me personally or reads this website understands how important the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation and its cause is to me. You also know that it’s not only Multiple Myeloma that I want a cure for, but all cancers. Just as the MMRF shares its research and findings with others in order to help speed progress, Tani and I also support other causes.

This weekend I will be running the first of 3 marathons in a 4 week span in Chicago. This one will be, as all runs are for me and my family, to raise awareness and funds to help find a cure for cancer. This particular run however is for a very special youngster named Quinn. And yes, Quinn is “Mighty”. Quinn is a Mighty Smart, Mighty Handsome, Mighty Athletic, Mighty Strong and Mighty Inspirational 7 year old boy who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on October 21st 2011. His parents Sandy and Dennis knew immediately that something was wrong when he returned home from school and did not want to play baseball or football, something he does every day.

Quinn is now in the midst of a 2 ½ year maintenance stage of his chemotherapy and doing well. Quinn who loves school (science) and sports, even completed his own race recently at the West Point Tough Kids Triathlon and his father raised over $6,000 in support of the Children’s Cancer Fund by completing the Westchester Triathlon on September 23rd. Tani thought it would be a great idea to dedicate this race to Quinn and I agree. I will be giving it all I have for Quinn this coming Sunday and if you would like to give too please go to his Dad’s fundraising page here and donate to the Children’s Cancer Fund. Thanks as always to all those who have and continue to support us.

Peace and Have A Great Day!
