Welcome to Run for Dori

Welcome, friends and guests. "Run for Dori" is dedicated to my wife, Dori Brown, who is battling AML, or acute myelogenous leukemia. Dori's battle is detailed at another site we set up recently at CaringBridge, which is linked on this home page.

My purpose with this blog is to detail my own thoughts and observations that are specific to Dori's situation. The CaringBridge site is all about Dori. I also intend to use this blog as a vehicle to raise a meaningful amount of money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to help identify cures. As Dori says, "We have a new cause."

I'll also address things like my training for the Sept. 2 Virginia Beach Half Marathon, how our friends are helping and the like. We have two wonderful children - Kathryn, 9, and Will, 7, - so expect a little about them, as well as things of interest to me and us like Vanderbilt athletics and current events when I have time to observe.

Thanks for visiting Run for Dori. I didn't name it Running for Dori for a reason - I want you all to continue helping Run for Dori any way that you can.

Dori and I appreciate your prayers and love. Jim
