Help Team in Training combat leukemia and lymphoma

Submitted By Raj Gill

Debbie and Jordyn Bishop have joined Team In Training to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Debbie is the mother of Matthew, who was diagnosed with leukemia in January 2003 at the age of eight years old. Matthew is now 16 years old and attends Kennedy High School in Fremont. The good news is that Matthew is celebrating five years of being cancer free.

Debbie and Jordyn (sister) want to do their part by helping other patients and families from going through what they did with Matthew. This year, an estimated 110,960 new cases of blood cancers will be diagnosed nationwide, and approximately 55,100 patients will not survive.

Debbie and Jordyn Bishop have committed to raise $6,600 by June 5th. Papa Murphy's Take n Bake Pizza will help by donating a portion of all sales on Wednesday, April 13 to the Bishop's Team in Training effort.
