2009 Champions of Hope

Meet Our 2009 Champions of Hope

All the candidates for Man & Woman of the Year are exceptional individuals. And some of them are so exceptional we've given them a special name: they are our Champions of Hope. These are candidates who went the distance and then some, raising, in ten weeks, $100,000 or more! They get a standing ovation from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and from more than 912,000 patients battling blood cancers, kudos to the Champions of Hope!
