About Team WOBO

So why are we walking our butts off?

Because on May 28, 2008 our lives changed with the news that Leesa had been diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL).

As a newly diagnosed cancer patient, I was like a sponge trying to soak up as much information about CLL as I could. That’s when I discovered the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS or Society).

We could no longer continue to hit the snooze button on the alarm clock of life. Something had to change and the one thing we knew we had control of was our sedentary lifestyle. As if in answer to a prayer….a flyer for Team In Training came in the mail. There it was – a goal. A milestone to shoot for. So we begin our journey of training for a marathon. 26.2 miles. And along the way we hope to gain more than a healthier lifestyle…..we hope to inspire others to do something they’ve never thought possible.
