Welcome! Thank you for visting our campaign donation page to fight Leukemia, Lymphoma, Myeloma, and other blood cancers together! Join us in our 10 week fundrasing effort, from March 23 to June 2, 2017, to stomp out cancer and give healing and hope to other survivors, such as myself! In 2015, I was diagnosed with a type of cancer that would have otherwise been untreatable had it not been for the efforts of organizations like LLS, funding valuable research for better options and cures. Because of individual and corporate contributions like yours, my options for treatment and hope for survival were multiplied. Today I am hoping to secure your donations to save other lives like mine. We want to raise $250,000.00 overall by June 3, 2017 by The Grande Finale Gala. Our desire is to fund a grant for Pediatric Leukemia initially which requires a minimum of $50,000.00!

The money raised through this campaign supports LLS research, patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services. LLS funded research has resulted in blood cancer treatment advancements that have doubled, tripled, and in some cases quadrupled the survival rate for some blood cancer patients. LLS efforts help more than just blood cancer patients. Almost half of all cancer treatments approved by the FDA are the result of blood cancer research. While many treatments are originally developed to treat blood cancers, they are also useful in treating many other types of cancer.
