Since 2001, there's an 80% increase for the five year survival rate of blood cancers! We are close to a cure but the statistics need to be 100% and lifetime survival rate - don't you agree?
Jamie Yarborough is Racing for Autism
Every 20 minutes a child is diagnosed with autism. This means that autism touches the lives of millions of people worldwide. Unfortunately despite autism’s prevalence, it receives substantially less funding for research than much less prevalent disorders. Jamie personally has a connection to the autism community as his son Jamie was diagnosed with autism just over a year ago. On September 29th 2013, Jamie is taking part in the Augusta IRONMAN 70.3, and at the same time raising funds for autism research and treatment through the South Carolina Autism Society. Please join Jamie in donating $.50 or more a mile as he races. Thank you for your consideration and support of this worthy cause.
