Support my brother in the Tour de Tucson!

Jeff - Tour de TucsonMy brother beeeej is riding in El Tour de Tucson once again, this Saturday, and he's raised just shy of $13,000 to help support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in combating these diseases and supporting patients and their families.

If you're relatively new to my journal, you may not know that our mother was diagnosed with leukemia several years ago. After a few years with no treatments, she went through a course of chemo earlier this year, and she's now in remission. It was a treatment that didn't exist when she was first diagnosed, and it was developed thanks to support from the LLS -- support from our friends and family, including quite a few of you! Thank you!

Some of you chipped in to sponsor my mother in last month's Light the Night Walk, and if you're willing and able to donate even a few dollars in support of my brother's 109-mile ride this weekend, we'd appreciate that, too. (See also tucsonorbust for more about the ride.)
