2017 Woman of the Year Candidate - Team #KickingItWithLily

Apr 17, 2017

 

 

 

    

 

Each year The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) launches a 10-week Man & Woman of the Year national fundraising campaign, and I have been nominated as a Woman of the Year Candidate for 2017. During this campaign, which kicks off March 23, 2017 and concludes June 3, 2017, my goal is to raise $500,000 which will go directly to LLS in support of its longstanding mission to find a cure for blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
 

Over Labor Day weekend, my 5-year-old “Fairy Goddaughter” Lily was abruptly diagnosed with Pre-B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia also known as ALL. Watching her endure grueling rounds of chemotherapy has been devastating. She remains strong and resilient, but we need to find a better treatment and ultimately a cure. And, I need your help!
 

My team #KickingItWithLily is working to accomplish the following goals while representing the National Capital Area: Raise $500,000, which will fund a research grant in Lily’s name, increase awareness of the impact of blood cancers and innovative treatments, and inspire community outreach for those who are currently kicking it.

 

Nearly HALF of all cancer treatments approved by the FDA were funded in part by LLS. Those treatments are now used for a multitude of cancers including breast, bone, pancreatic, and brain to name a few. LLS-funded drugs like targeted therapies and immunotherapies are now saving thousands of lives every day.
 

Leukemia is the number one diagnosed cancer in children under the age of 20. In 1964, the five-year survival rate for children with the most common form of leukemia was only 4%. Today, 90% of those will survive. In 2017, 1 in 285 children, adolescents and young adults are expected to be diagnosed with cancer throughout the U.S.

 

Will you consider contributing a tax-deductible donation or becoming a sponsor in support of increasing Lily’s survival rate along with the 40,000 other children currently kicking it? Every dollar raised counts as one vote, and the candidate who receives the most votes and raises the most money is named Man or Woman of the Year. Most importantly, as you know, everyone wins when cancer loses and together we will help fund the therapies and treatments that save lives, not someday but today.
 

Thank you for your generous support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, one of the world’s most respected nonprofit organizations committed to finding cures for cancers. Please feel free to contact me at (703) 309-7299 or jessica.marie.harrison@gmail.com regarding any questions you may have regarding LLS and the 2017 campaign.

 

For Cures,

Jessica Harrison
