So here’s the promised post on my honorees. 🙂
My personal honoree is my Aunt Amy Brooks. She was diagnosed with Leukemia in September 1996 and went through chemo and bone marrow transplant treatments. Happily – they worked! She’s in great shape today and is running an all natural soap business called Bubbles by Brooks. (Check out her website! http://www.bubblesbybrooks.com)
Our Honored Teammate for the TNT MN triathlon teams is Eric Dahlquist. Eric was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) in December 2004 (age 10) and fought the disease for 4 long years. He took his last chemo pill on April 29, 2008! He got his “Make A Wish” and celebrated by traveling to England to see the British Open!
