Abby's Marathon

Julie's daughter, Abby, ran a marathon in Paris this past weekend. There were 31,566 participants in the 42.195 kilometer marathon.

Abby is a registered nurse and works in the specialty of bone marrow transplant at Baylor University Medical Center of Dallas. She cares for blood cancer patients with leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma.

She joined a group intent on raising money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The challenge required both physical and financial commitment. At one point she had to agree to participate and donate from personal funds any monies not raised. She selected the Paris marathon which was one of several possibilities.

Windows, Doors and Gates.

Abby's husband, Shawn, is from Montreal, Canada, and speaks French. He joined Abby on the trip to Paris.
