New Jersey Chapter's
 Man & Woman of the Year Campaign!

We are so excited to kick off our
2016 Man & Woman of the Year Campaign!

Are you interested in getting involved or nominating a candidate to participate in this life changing fundraiser. If so, please contact:
Elizabeth Madzin - or Melissa Casafranca -

 The Campaign
We are excited to once again begin inviting dynamic and passionate candidates to engage in a ten-week intensive fundraising competition to earn The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "Man & Woman of the Year" titles, by raising funds for blood cancer research.

The Candidates
Ideal candidates are community based leaders who are philanthropic, ambitious, socially active, resourceful, goal oriented, and passionate about making a difference in the lives of people suffering from blood cancers.  Their ambition drives them to fundraise in a very large-scale capacity with record-breaking results.

The Reason
Every three minutes, someone in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer.  LLS is the world's largest national voluntary health organization dedicated to curing blood cancers and improving the quality of life of patients.  Fortunately, there is hope for a future free of blood cancers.

Please continue to check back for more information on the upcoming year.  We look forward to great things in 2016!
