About Lea's Foundation

In 1998, Lea Michele Economos, a young woman who died of leukemia at the age of 28, made a dying wish to her parents that others would not face the hardships she encountered by finding a cure for this disease. Her family started this charity to carry on that wish. Today, Lea’s Foundation takes an active role in finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s lymphoma and myeloma and to better the lives of people living with these diseases. At the UCONN Health Center, the Lea’s Foundation Center for Hematologic Disorders sponsors research in this field. A new program covers the cost of bone-marrow testing to help recruit life-saving transplants for patients. Also, annual scholarships are given to children with leukemia who are planning to attend nursery school. For more information on other projects carried out by Lea’s Foundation, please visit their website at www.LeasFoundation.org.

Rainy Day in Connecticut

A Little Inspiration

For those of you just starting to look at the blog after receiving our donation letters, I figured it was worth putting up (the coolest, in my opinion) cycling video. We will look exactly this majestic on our ride--except our bikes will be loaded down, we're not professional cyclists, we won't look like we just stepped out of a coffeeshop...regardless, this video is beautiful. Take a second to look at it.

*This comes from Rapha, a company that makes high-end cycling clothing. They have a pile of excellent videos so if you're interested in entertaining yourself on this rainy Sunday, go for it.

All the best,
