As many of you know over the past few years I have participated in several fundraisers for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Societies Hollywood Light the Night Walk in support of Nadia Bjorlin’s team, Nadia’s Cancer Crusaders. These fundraisers have been organized annually by Meghan Benoit and her Light the Night Walk Team in an effort to combine the efforts of both teams and raise as much money as possible to help fight blood cancers.

I was recently given a copy of Meghan’s 2013 Woman of the Year Campaign letter, and was moved by her story and unselfish desire to help others and honor her Grandfather by participating in this fundraising campaign. Therefore, when approached by Meghan to join her team “Just Jack” I decided to expand my efforts to bring awareness to this incredible cause by helping her team raise money.

Please remember every dollar counts, and every dollar means another life saved, another family supported, and another step closer to winning the fight against blood cancers.

  • A $50 Donation - Will enter you in a chance to win one of FIVE copies of the “Days of our Lives 45 Years: A Celebration in Photos” signed by myself, Nadia Bjorlin, and several other Days cast members. (Winners will be announced Monday, June 17th, 2013 please be sure to complete all requested information when making your donation so we have the appropriate address to send the book).

  • A $250 Donation - Will enter you in a chance to win two tickets to the 2013 Man & Woman of the Year Grand Finale Gala in Los Angeles on June 15, 2013, and the autographed books. (Winner to be announced on Monday, June 3, 2013).

  • A $1,500 Donation – Will enter you in a chance to win the books, the tickets, and a Dream Date with yours truly! (Winner to be announced on Monday, June 17th, 2013)

Welcome to my Man & Woman of the Year home page!

Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising campaign. Every dollar I raise counts as one vote and the candidate who gets the most votes /raises the most money is named the Man or Woman of the Year.

Thanks to your support, my efforts, will help fund the therapies and treatments and help save lives today.

LLS's continued advancements over the years, are responsible for the blood cancer survival rate doubling and tripling; in some cases, the survival rate has even quadrupled.

And many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients but are now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers. They're even being tested in clinical trials for patients with a range of cancers including lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. LLS funded drugs like Gleevec, Sprycel, Arinza, Tasigna and Zolinza are now being tested for patients with other non-cancerous diseases like Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis.

We really are changing the face of blood cancer!

All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS research but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.

Please visit my Web site often and bring friends who would also like to donate!

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere I thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit www.lls.org

We are sorry donations are no longer being accepted for this participant for this event.
