ones whose lives have been touched by this diseaseand many others,” Reid said. “It can happen to any of us.”For Michele Innelli Cox, 54, a Long Island native,the Avon Walk and support from Team Kaleel areespecially meaningful. She was diagnosed with breastcancer Feb. 4, 2011.“One of the hardest things to do is tell your family,friends and those who work closely with you,” Coxsaid. “The support given to one going through this isphenomenal. One cannot quantify the immense feel-ings a patient and family have when there is such anoutpouring of love. You are no longer in it alone, thereare others out there that have been impacted by thissome way or another and go above and beyond tosupport and show they care.”“A perfect example is what the Kaleel JamisonConsulting Group does year after year for those whohave lost lives and those who are fighting for their lifeand those that have won the battle,” she said. “Rais-ing this money through the Avon Walk allows us tokeep this disease and the importance of finding acure upfront and forward.”Cox said she and others muster the strength toendure the fight because of Team Kaleel and otherswho give so much of their time and resources.Team Kaleel credits much of its ongoing success tothe generosity of organizations and individuals whohave helped in the past and continue to offer assis-tance, including Zumba Instructor Christine Sarra-tori of Abs, Inc. who recently raised approximately $1,400 at a Zumbathon at Bootleggers in Troy.For more information or to make a donation visit
