    to run and get ready forthat and I just couldntbreathe, Weiner said.

    He went to the doctornumerous times and keptgetting different explana-tions. On race day, hiswife decided enough wasenough and took him tothe hospital instead.

    An X-ray later, theysaw a large mass in my up-per chest. The passionwas definitely thrust uponme, Weiner said.

    Donations can be madethrough Weiners candi-date page on the Leuke-mia & Lymphoma Soci-etys website, He is also hostingtwo fundraising events.

    The first is We TapOut Leukemia & Lym-phoma, which will be atthe Tap House Grill, 8740Montgomery Road, from

    7 p.m. to midnight Satur-day, April 11. Tickets are$100 and the night will in-clude food, drinks, enter-tainment and auctionitems. Weiner said he isfriends with the ownerwho agreed to shut therestaurant done for thenight for the event.

    Weiner is also hosting athree-point shoot-out atMadeira High SchoolApril 26.

    Brad Redford, a for-mer Xavier basketballplayer, is working withme on that. We are callingit Brad Redfords Bucketsvs. Blood Cancer. It is kindof an NBA style shoot-out.We are going to have tonsof kids there and grown-ups too, he said.

    The finals will be at theCintas Center in June.

    The campaign closeswith a grand finale auc-tion with all the candi-dates May 29.

    Weiner said campaign-ing has been a lot of work,but with his team behind

    him and the importance ofthe Leukemia & Lympho-ma Society, it has beenworthwhile.

    Since 2000, of the 36cancer treatment drugsthat have been approvedby the FDA 19 of themwere funded by LLS. Ev-erybody that came beforeme helped save me life,he said.

    Though the Leukemia& Lymphoma Society isfocused on blood cancer,its research helps fightall types of cancer.

    The research that LLSis doing is not only effect-ing blood cancer but thetreatment they are devel-oping are effective waysto treat other types of can-cer as well. It is not justabout blood cancer, it isabout all cancers, hesaid.
