My name is Patrick, and I am a member of the 2011 Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge Team.
My Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge Partner, Brendan is a very exceptional 10-year-old who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in the end of 2009. Brendan is thankfully in remission, but is currently undergoing two years of aggressive chemotherapy to help ensure the cancer doesn’t return.
I created this blog for Brendan and me. My entries are conversions between two team mates. I welcome anyone to follow along and check in often. I’m sure along the way there will be plenty of talk about running and training, Lego’s and food (especially teriyaki chicken) , cancer and treatment, good days and bad…and yes the weather. But most of all, it will be about two people teaching each other about living life.
