Thank you so much for your interest in supporting LLS’s mission to cure blood cancer, not someday but today! Please note, online fundraising gifts made from this point forward will not impact the announcement of the 2014 local Man and Woman of the Year in the Triangle, but your donation will still greatly impact LLS’s mission.

Welcome to my Man & Woman of the Year home page!  I am raising funds on behalf of the Girl of the Year, Maddie (above), who is a survivor of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), and an amazing advocate for this cause.


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, we 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.
