Thank you for visiting my Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) fundraising page. I'm happy you're here!
I hope you're able to join me in supporting LLS by making a donation to my fundraising campaign for Woman of the Year. I am honored to have been selected as one of the 17 candidates participating in the 2016 campaign and am on a 10-week mission to raise as much money as possible for LLS. 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. Let's do this together!
The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is critical: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
I have come to know too many people touched by blood cancers. That is why I am going to work hard over the next 10 weeks of the campaign to raise as much money as possible. And together, we can make a difference.
Here’s why supporting LLS is important:
Every three minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer.
Every 10 minutes someone dies from a blood cancer.
Leukemia is the leading cause of cancer death of children and young adults under the age of 20.
In this year alone an estimated 2,000 residents in Kansas and more than 2,700 residents in Missouri will be diagnosed with a blood cancer.
Here’s how your donation will make a difference:
Over the years, support from people like you has been responsible for the blood cancer advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancers. Many LLS supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients, but are also now used to treat patients with rare forms of stomach and skin cancers and are in clinical trials for patients with lung, brain, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancers. And LLS funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.
Ready to donate?
We really are getting close to our goal of a world without blood cancers! All donations are greatly appreciated (and 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 tell friends who would also like to donate! On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support!
