2017 Man Woman of the Year Campaign

Mar 24, 2017

I am honored to be a candidate in the 2017 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Man & Woman of the Year Campaign.  


This is a very personal effort for me as leukemia has directly impacted my family. In 1986, when my youngest brother, Chris, was five years old he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).  At 13 years old, I saw firsthand what he went through...the many blood transfusions, bone marrow transplants, hospital stays and chemotherapy treatments.
 

We are so blessed that he beat the disease, but many we encountered along his journey were not as lucky.  My daughters, Lauren, Jordyn and Madison, are healthy. But when I know that leukemia is the leading cause of disease related death among children and that ten times as many adults are affected, and when I know that more than 140,000 people will be diagnosed with a blood cancer this year and that more than 53,000 will lose their battle, I hope and pray that our good fortune will continue.

 By forming a team of family and friends, ‘Team Hope’, and with your help, we CAN raise money to help save lives and fight cancer!

 

 

 

 

Our team goal is to raise $150,000 between now and June 1. 

 

I know this sounds ambitious.  But when a disease as ambitious as blood cancer kills a man, woman or child every 10 minutes, it must be met head on with just as much ambition.  As a candidate in the Man & Woman of the Year campaign, I have pledged to work tirelessly, aggressively, and compassionately to reach my goal.  Every dollar I raise during this ten-week campaign supports the LLS mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.  And 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. LLS funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day! 

 

LLS is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services and the organization relies on the generosity of individual and corporate contributions to advance its mission.  For more than 60 years, LLS has invested over $1 billion to advance cancer therapies and save lives. And it all begins with people like you and me.

 

There are many ways you can help!

Thank you so much for your support!
