#GIVINGTUESDAY

Black Friday, Cyber Monday and #GivingTuesday! Today Tuesday, December 3rd is #GivingTuesday, a day to give back and to kick-off the Holiday giving season. With the Holiday season approaching and individuals beginning their Holiday shopping #GivingTuesday is a day that encourages individuals to continue to give back to their communities, charities or schools.

Today, I’ve once again partnered with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) to help raise awareness and funds to continue to help save lives. If you aren’t aware I’ve been a long-time supporter, runner, and mentor for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training (TNT) here in Washington, DC.  Today I encourage you to support not just me but the LLS by making a donation to my TNT page, http://pages.teamintraining.org/nca/shamrock14/travissmith. For today only a long-time supporter and friend has agreed to match dollar by dollar the funds that are raised  for #GivingTuesday. No matter how large or small your donation may be you are helping save more lives by providing researchers the tools they need to help find a cure for blood cancer and by becoming a hero to the millions who are battling blood cancer today! Become a hero, donate today and help researchers discover the next big breakthrough towards finding a cure.

I truly appreciate your support through your donation and encouragement. I know with supporters like yourself we will find a cure for blood cancer within my lifetime. As John Diamond once said, “Cancer is a word NOT a sentence.” Never make it a sentence and continue to fight!
