One of the many reasons I am doing this

Doug Wagner. Doug is our honor patient, honor hero for the Tahoe Ride. Doug is a great spirit and an Alum of the Team in Training Family. He is 42 years old, has a wonderful family and has completed numerous events with Team in Training, and last time I talked with him was coming up on his 5 year anniversary of being cancer free. Doug went on one of the Team rides a little over a month ago...and kicked my butt. Despite the side trip he and Mike Ryan took into a ditch near the end...everyone was fine...Doug is the kind of person and spirit that makes all this more worthwhile. Always with a smile on his face, and energy that doesn't quit, Doug helps me realize that what we are doing to fight Leukemia , Lymphoma and blood cancers is so very important, for the patients. their families and for those who are currently battling blood cancers, and for those who have battled and lost. GO TEAM!
