I volunteer with Team In Training, a sports group that raises funds for cancer research, specifically the blood cancers, Leukemia, Lymphoma and Myeloma. I am on the Silicon Valley Triathlon Team and we have several members of the team that are currently being treated for blood cancer.
A mother who previously ran Marathons just to help raise money, found herself on the patient side when her 5 year old son was diagnosed with Leukemia. Fortunately, she was told, that her son was diagnosed today ago. Today her son has a 77% survival rate, she was told. Not that long ago, her son would have had a 3% chance.
I hope that Kareem will join our team as either a participant or an honoree. It would be a pleasure to have him.
The Silicon Valley Tri Team wishes you the best.

P.S. I am Denis ONeills sister in law, who used to play for Stanford when Kareem was Al.
