About Me

Feb 28, 2015

 

Choose to Fight.

Choose to Make a Difference.




My name is Chris Gannon and I have been nominated as a candidate for the 2015 Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Man of the Year. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society became part of my life in 2011 when my father was diagnosed with multiple myeloma.  For sixteen months, my father fought, facing each day with optimism and courage.  He fought through chemo and radiation treatments, a stem cell transplant, surgeries, and hospital stays.  Despite all he endured, he continued to live, to love, and to touch the lives of those around him.  My father did not choose cancer but he chose to Fight.  He chose to Make a Difference.

 

I became involved with the LLS as a volunteer educational speaker and have presented on a number of occasions for various events.  Little did I know, when I agreed to become part of the LLS team, that my very first speaking engagement would occur just a few weeks after my father passed away.  Since then, the LLS has become even more dear to my heart.  I choose to Fight.  I choose to Make a Difference.

 

In volunteering with LLS my goal has been to make a difference in the lives of others; those currently fighting this disease, along with the family and loved ones of those fighting alongside them.  Less than one year after my father passed away, my godfather became one of these people when he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma.  We choose to Fight.  We choose to Make a Difference.

 

 

 

 
 
Each day, each dollar brings us closer to a cure, closer to the next drug that will give someone another day.  This is why we fight.  We fight for the next birthday, the next anniversary, the next holiday, the next hug.  Will you choose to join this Fight?  Will you choose to Make a Difference?
