Still Swimming

My apologies once again for this pertaining to something other than writing, but I'd like to update those who have expressed concern and support for Matt over the past year. :)

And a huge, huge, HUGE thank you to everyone who commented in the previous post! Matt is determined to beat this once and for all... he is truly a warrior.

The "update" quote is from my Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "Light The Night" page. We all hope you will be able to join us on 8/22 at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California as we walk for a CURE (it's at night, so the weather will be perfect). We'd love to have as many of Matt's friends, family, and supporters there as possible!!

UPDATE (7/02/09):
Last Friday, we learned Matt's EBV-HLH and NK T-cell lymphoma have returned for another battle. This time, the lymphoma has manifested as two tumors in the brain and one in his knee. So, instead of celebrating with Matt at the walk, we'll be there with him as he once again fights these blood diseases. Currently, he's undergoing chemo treatments and will soon be participating in an experimental t-cell clinical trial at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, which we're all positive will put him back on track for a full recovery. And then we'll find the CURE for blood cancers!

Also, if possible, please consider a $5, $10, or $25 (or more) donation to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We need to find a CURE. And please feel free to pass this along to your friends... Thank you!

Thank you again for all of your kind words and support... you're the best!
