my sweet friend karyn is participating in a triathlon to support the leukemia & lymphoma society and i couldn’t be more willing to help her raise money! i created this piece that represents the three legs of the race–she’ll be swimming .62 miles, biking 18 miles and running 6 miles!! today *monday* 20% of all sales (on anything from the site) will go to benefit the leukemia & lymphoma society. so SHOP for a great cause.

my friend Cara is cancer free after fighting lymphoma this year (immediately following the birth of her 2nd daughter). do you know someone affected by leukemia or lymphoma? please share your story with us.

*if you would like to order the necklace pictured, you’ll need to order the single tag necklace (under something simple) and then request the LLS design. you can also order the tag keychain (under something extra) and request the LLS design. happy shopping!

    This is great! I’ll post a link to this on my blog as well!

    BTW, I got your email about the CF thing…I sent an email back, but haven’t heard from you…if you didn’t get the email, let me know and I’ll try again!

    Thank you so much for supporting a cause so close to my heart. My mom died of leukemia when she was only 36. She had four children ranging in ages from 2 to 13 and we all miss her dearly.

    both my paternal grandmother and maternal grandfather had non-hodgkins lymphoma. there is a high incidence of it in the place i grew up. my grandmother passed away from the cancer but my grandfather was able to make a full recovery.

    i wish my financial situation allowed for me to place an order today but since that is not the case, please thank your friend for me and let her know that i think her participation in the triathlon is fantastic.

    Best of luck and many thanks to your friend! I completed my first tri with TNT this past September and it was an amazing experience. Go Team!

    I have a friend from high school who beat lymphoma a couple of years ago.

    Right now at my school, the kids are collecting pennies to donate to the LLS. My students are SO excited about the fact that our collection box is almost half full already!

    Lost grandfather and aunt, I never got to know to L&L. Also son in law and daughter have been through Non Hodgkin L. Thanks for your support. We will participate.

    Lisa,
    Thanks so much for doing the fundraiser. It is amazing how many people have been affected by blood cancers, either themselves or someone they care for. It was great to hear Kerry’s story – a 12 year survivor, Awesome!
    My heart goes our to Liz who lost her mom at a young age. Thank you for sharing.
    Thanks to everyone who helps me with my fundraising, either through buying one of Lisa’s great pieces or through linking to my LLS webpage. I appreciate it!

    My 4 year old daughter is fighting leukemia for the second time. She had a bone marrow transplant in Oct. of 2006 and is currently undergoing chemotherapy to prepare her for another transplant this spring sometime.

    Thank you for raising funds for a cause dear to my heart…

    My mom was just diagnosed with leukemia/lymphoma (both of them) last month. She is still in her first round of chemo. She’s doing okay at this point but I know it’s just starting. THANK you for supporting this great cause! I posted a link back to here on my Facebook account.

    just found out that my brother in law has lymphoma. we’re all praying for him and for all those who suffer. thanks for the support to this charity by doing this.

    Lisa, how neat of you to use your talents to support this cause. What a difference-maker you are!

    I received my tiny hearts necklace and pearl earrings today and (seriously) squealed out loud! I can’t wait to give them to my friend (and now I need to order one for me!). You are so gifted!

    We recently lost our best friend and spiritual mentor to lymphoma. He was such an awesome man and for the sake of raising his family, he fought this thing for 23 years…
    Stephen was the father to 12 amazing children and husband to one amazing women!
    We miss him tremendously, but know that we will one day be reunited with him in Heaven!

    That is so awesome that you are doing that for your friend! My husband is a Team in Training Campaign Manager for the Leukemia and Lyphoma Society here in Ohio, so one or the other of us is usually doing an event to raise money for them. Before he started working for the Society, I did a marathon with TNT and had no connection to the cause. 3 years later and I have experienced the heartache of a dear friend losing her father to lymphoma, my school losing a beloved art teacher to lymphoma and having one of my students being diagnosed this year with leukemai (she’s doing well with treatment so far). So my newest effort, a 100 mile bike ride this summer, is for her. You can check my progress at http://pages.teamintraining.org/soh/fletchr09/mriggstebp
    Thank you so much to you and your friend for contributing to such a worthy cause. :-)

    Hi Lisa,
    I love your website. I definitely have to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society since they (and UCLA) funded a large part of the trial that kept me alive when I had non hodgkins lymphoma almost 10 years ago. Thank goodness for that because now I get the pleasure of teaching David and talking star wars and light abers with Mattie.
    I will be in touch to order some more jewlry this month. My sister loved the itty bitty initials with her 3 sons and husbands initals on it. She gets compliments daily and it has stood up to the clutches of a newborn, 2 year old and 4 year old – no small feat!!
    Thanks for you inspirations and beautiful jewelry.

    Next month will mark 15 years since I finished chemo for non-hodgkin’s lymphoma. I came very close to not surviving, so it feels like a miracle that I’m still here 15 years later! Thanks so much for helping the leukemia and lymphoma society!!! Great necklace too!
