Congratulations as well to the runners up:
Matt Cox and Maureen Elliott
Matt Cox and Deb Sumption received the 2013 Mission Award.
This award acknowledges a candidate who has demonstrated exceptional outreach and advocacy throughout their campaign. Candidates were nominated by their peers, their campaign managers and the leadership team. Both the leadership team and candidates then reviewed each nomination and voted for the person who exemplified the mission.
Thank you to all of the 2013 Candidates for supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society mission and being heroes in the fight against blood cancer!
Every dollar counts! Although the winners have been announced, all donations will make a huge impact on LLS's mission. Visit our Online Store to help accelerate research and improve the quality of life for patients.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Man & Woman of the Year campaign is a national ten-week campaign to raise funds to help find cures for blood cancers. The campaign includes individuals in the community who agree to utilize their leadership abilities and resources to conduct their own fundraising campaigns to help The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society fund blood cancer research and provide education and support services for patients and their families.
The male and female candidates who raise the most funds during the campaign will be awarded the title of the chapter's Man & Woman of the Year. Candidates are judged solely on their success in raising money, each dollar counting as one vote. Their totals are then considered for the national title. Candidates run in honor of the Boy & Girl of the Year, who are local blood cancer patient survivors and sources of inspiration to others.
We are now accepting candidate nominations for our 2014 campaign! If you or someone you know are interested in running for next year's Man and Woman of the Year title, please contact Louise Popp at 508-810-1302 or Louise.Popp@lls.org.
Congratulations to our 2014 Man & Woman of the Year Winners
