What is 821ForAnna ?

Dr's have said that Anna's Leukemia diagnosis calls for a treatment of 2 years and 3 months or 821 days of treatment to work to CURE her of this cancer.  A glorious cocktail of drugs. Chemotherapy, Steroids and a laundry list of others.  In the short time we have seen how difficult this is for her and the tough times that she will need to endure.  This journey will be painful and draining for Anna, both physically and emotionally.  She will need tremendous support from us (her parents), friends and the community to help aid her along.

To help bring awareness to this disease and inspire Anna to "fight the fight!" we started 821ForAnna.Org

#821ForAnna is a way to do something to help raise awareness for Leukemia and take on a challenge to support here.  I have pledged that in the 821 days of Anna fight, that I will cycle 821 miles per month till she completes her treatment.  Hopefully all will goes as planned and I will have cycled 22,167 miles, helped inspire Anna on her journey and create awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
