There are Grants to help through LLS and where ever you get treatment their Advocates can sign you up for it . Also we got help for my hubby's Chemo drug from Johnson/Johnson , we didn't pay anything for a drug called Imbruvica and it was 12,000 a month ! Hope you get help .

Someone else has mentioned it but some of the money raised goes to helping folks with paying for treatment. I was fortunate to have decent insurance coverage, but 20% of a drug that costs $800 still hit me hard.

Part of Team in Training is that you will have Mentors that help you along the way. Once you sign up you are provided with a website that people can easily donate to - on this website is a TON of ideas for fundraising! Anything you can think of is possible - Easter Baskets sold at a church, car wash, yard sale, savings cards, writing letters telling people what you're doing... Endless possibilities!

I was interested in doing the one here in Raleigh this summer, but the sign up cost is a bit much. Any suggestions on good ways to raise money?

First - the money raised through team in training goes to the leukemia and lymphoma society, thus - the people who benefit are people with blood cancer. The money goes to research, educations of patient and health care providers, and it goes to support financial assistance of patients with blood cancer (leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, MDS (myelodysplastic syndrome).

You may want to check out teamintraining.org

You can walk/run half or full marathons, ride your bike 100 miles, and participate in olympic distance triathlons.

Team in Training has been around much longer than the ACS "determiNATION' program and from what I know, the ACS program has been modeled after the TNT program. Although there are lots of similarities there may be some differences.

I hope that answer your question. Personally I have done 8 bike rides - three marathons, and two triathlons for Team in Training. I will be doing a triathlon next summer.

I recently learned about the Team in Training, but do not know much about it. I researched it a bit on the LLS website and it looks cool. How does this program work? How does it compare to the similar program that the American Cancer Society has?

Thanks.
