Connections

I wanted to share the story of an important connection that I made this past week. I received the below email from a woman whose father was just recently diagnosed with the same form of leukemia that I was diagnosed with. Needless to say, I was very touched by her email. So much so, that I made arrangements to meet the woman, as well as her mom, right after the 8K race that was run this weekend as part of the Philadelphia Marathon & Half Marathon. We met briefly after the race and established a great connection which I hope will continue to grow.
