Update Time!

Hi everyone! The marathon training has kept me busy but I wanted to pop in for a quick update.

Allie had her 1 year appointment recently and guess what?? Yeah, we kicked Cancer's butt. Again.

Take that Cancer! And I wouldn't come around here again if I were you! It's Hoskins 3, Cancer 0. Really, it's just getting embarrasing for you.

The marathon is this Sunday. If you would still like to donate to help find a cure for Leukemia & Lymphoma please visit my fundraising site at:

It should be available for up to 30 days after race day. Remember, every little bit helps! Let's find a cure for this once and for all and REALLY kick some Cancer Bootay!

Running a Marathon!

Ok, well technically a half-marathon...

I am raising funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) as a participant in their Team In Training program in honor of Jeff & Allie and another friend, Amanda Dyer White and I'm asking you to help by making a donation to my fundraising campaign.

Please use the link in this post to donate online quickly and securely plus learn more about my progress. You will receive a confirmation of your donation by email and I will be notified as soon as you make your donation.

Each donation helps accelerate finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. More than 823,000 Americans are battling these blood cancers. I am hoping that my participation in Team In Training will help bring them hope and support.

On behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, thank you very much for your support. I greatly appreciate your generosity.

Allie's scan was clear. They had moved it up because she was feeling run down and her lymph nodes in her neck were swollen and sore. Of course that send up red flags and safe is always better than sorry!

But... turns out she just has "The Crud" like all the rest of us! Amen for the common cold!

Latest from Allison...

Just wanted to let you all know that I will be getting a CT tomorrow and results on Monday. I was supposed to have the CT on the 16th but my symptoms have been getting worse and now the lymphnodes in my neck are swollen so they moved it forward. I am a little scared but mostly I just want to know if I need to be worried or if it is just some kind of bug that is making me feel crappy. I will keep you all updated, wish me luck!
love allie

New Year Update!

Hi everyone! Hope 2009 is treating you all well so far and that this will be a happy, HEALTHY year for the Hoskins family as well. Here is part of an email I got today from Allison. Please keep her in your prayers as she goes for her next scan.

"Just let everyone know that things are going pretty good Jeff is off all meds and will be monitored every three mths. I have been having some symptoms of the cancer coming back but we are going to do a CT scan on Jan.16th to see for sure, who knows it could be nothing. Tell everyone thank you for there prayers and support and we love them all, that goes for you to. "

One other update, I am contemplating participating in the Team in Training event for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I will post more info after I have attended the information meeting later this month. If I run, I will do so in honor of Jeff & Allie so I hope we can raise a TON of money for this organization that supports so many who are going through this journey like they are.

Happy New Year!
